More than 35 Globe University-Woodbury students graduated at the Commencement Ceremony Winter 2015. This was the first graduation hosted at the campus, and it was a success.
The graduates and their families along with staff and faculty gathered on the top floor of the second Globe building on the campus. There they heard the wisdom of keynote speaker Brenna O’Connor, a Globe University instructor, and graduate speakers Tamara Boeseneilers, a business administration graduate, and Tiffany Maya, a massage therapy graduate.
Fourteen out of the 35 (40 percent) graduates graduated with honors or highest honors. In order to stress the importance of academic performance, Globe University also awards academic honor recognition quarterly to qualifying students. A student must achieve a quarterly grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or above to achieve the honors recognition, and a quarterly GPA of 4.0 to achieve highest honors.

“Students work very hard to achieve an honors status both quarterly and for graduation,” said Kelley Aliffi, dean of students at Globe University-Woodbury. “It is the staff and faculty’s goal to support and encourage our students to be the best students they can be so they can work in their chosen career fields when they graduate.”
Congratulations 2015 Winter Graduates!
