During the month of May students all over the United States enjoy the ceremonies and celebrations of graduation. This was true for ELI 360 students who finished their college career at Hardin-Simmons University and Abilene Christian University.

For Ted Presley, founder of ELI 360, and his wife Ellen this month was a great opportunity to celebrate with local students at two partner universities who celebrated the completion of their undergraduate studies. When ELI 360 representatives meet with families in country they always have an end vision for the young university candidate – that of graduation and future careers. “It is always a delight to be able to attend the ceremonies of our graduates because for a moment we are able to enjoy the investment we made during the prior years,” said Ted during a brief visit.

As next year’s students are finishing their high school studies back at home and applying for visas they too will join such students as Cynthia and David who joined ELI 360 and enrolled in one of the U.S.’s top quality universities.

In the U.S. graduation is an important milestone for young people. It is a moment in time where they can look back and realize all that has been accomplished. This is especially true for international students who have completed their studies in a foreign country. Not only have they been required to work hard in their academic studies but they have had to overcome the challenges of a foreign language and culture. This factor alone enhances their ability to be creative and innovative in their profession. Such research has been highlighted in previous blog posts by Ted.2010 Graduation B
