School of Religion and RELS DSC host dinner for graduating students

On Tuesday, March 31, 2015, the School of Religion and the Religious Studies Departmental Student Council hosted a dinner for the graduating undergraduate students of Religious Studies.

The celebration of students and their hard work was a great end to another successful year for the department. Students had a chance to mingle with faculty to make long-lasting connections, and they were encouraged to keep in touch once they begin their journey as alumni.
