International students: Want to carry your country’s flag at graduation?
If you are an international student graduating this December you have the opportunity to carry your country’s flag in the commencement procession at graduation. If you would like to represent your country, please send an e-mail to the Office of International Student Services no later that Friday, Nov. 25.
Only one person per country and ceremony will be allowed to carry their country’s flag.
According to the St. Thomas Flag Policy, approved by the UST President’s office, only flags of countries that are member states of the United Nations can be carried. For a list of member states of the U.N. click here.
The first person to sign up from a country will be that country’s flag bearer. Contact the Office of International Student Services immediately if you want to represent your country.
If you have questions, contact OISS, (651) 962-6650, or stop by the office in Room 161, Murray-Herrick Campus Center.
