GSBS 2013 Graduation wrap-up:
Graduation Celebration 2013: Members of the class of 2013 of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences pose in front the UTHealth mural on May 16 during the GSBS Graduation Celebration. More than 50 graduates, family and friends attended the event that was held to welcome the graduates as new alumni and was sponsored by the GSBS Alumni Association. The GSBS 2013 graduation ceremony and reception was held May 18, 10 a.m. at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, Alice Pratt Brown Hall
Commencement is a tradition that many graduates look forward to and for 16 Master of Science and 54 Doctor of Philosophy Candidates of The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, May 18 was the day! With pomp and circumstance playing, they walked across the stage at Rice University’s Alice Pratt Brown Hall to accept their diplomas. Even though the traditional sights at a commencement ceremony feature caps, gowns, hoods and tams, GSBS graduates injected their own customs into the festivities, including traditional Indian attire, and gifts of good luck (a pineapple) and prosperity (a melon).
