Fall 2016 Donning of the Kente

Dear Fall 2016 Graduate,

 The time is drawing near for this year’s graduating class to construct the final memories that they will carry with them throughout a lifetime.  The Center for Multicultural Student Services will be holding a “Donning of the Kente” celebratory reception on Wednesday, December 15, 2016 at 6pm in Madison Union, 256.
 The Donning of the Kente celebration reception recognizes the accomplishments of graduating students who have engaged in CMSS programs and services while at James Madison University. During the fall semester, we do not host our traditional formal program. In lieu of the formal program, there will be light reception. Fall graduates are encouraged to attend this reception held in their honor and receive a traditional cultural stole which may be worn at JMU commencement exercises.
 If you or anyone you know is graduating this fall and would like to participate in this reception sign-up by using this link:
 The deadline to sign up is December 1, 2016Limited space is available. 
 Thank you and congratulations,
The Center for Multicultural Student Services
