The 3rd annual Southeast Asian Graduation returns to UC Davis on Friday, June 11, 2010 from 6:00-9:00PM in Freeborn Hall. This special event focuses on recognizing the students of, not limited to, Southeast Asian graduating seniors for their achievements. This means that you don’t necessarily have to identify as Southeast Asian (Vietnamese, Thai, Khmer, Hmong, Iu Mien, Laotian, Indonesian etc) to participate – in fact, as long as you want to be a part of this experience, you are more than welcome.

SEA Grad started 3 years ago with the collective efforts of the Southeast Asian student community at Davis. They wanted a special intimate ceremony that acknowledge this particular ethnic community. UC Berkeley had their own tradition, but Davis lacked one. Months of planning, fundraising, and spreading awareness resulted in a successful turnout!

If you are a graduating senior, I highly encourage you to participate in this event. Benefits are that you can

  • invite a lot of family members to attend at no cost (yes, while UCD commencement may limit your tickets, SEA Grad does not!)
  • Get a few minutes to express gratitude to those who supported you (even in your own family language!)
  • Graduate with peers from diverse communities and colleges
  • The entire event is of no cost to you, because the dedicated coordinators and committee plan the event!

For more information read the following message below from this year’s Sea Grad coordinators who happen to be member of AAA and Film Fest =].
