Recent graduates and their friends and family attended the Florida International University College of Law December Graduate Reception on Dec. 12, 2012. The event was graciously hosted by Dean Acosta and his family at their home in Coral Gables.
“We wanted to congratulate our recent graduates, and let them know how proud we are of them,” said Dean Alex Acosta. “This is a big moment in their lives and I am happy we could be a part of it.”
Attendees were welcomed by Ana Bierman, Director of Career Planning & Placement, and Christina MacRobert Ruiz ’07, Vice President of the FIU Law Alumni Association. Both conveyed to the alumni that graduating from FIU Law does not mean the relationship between the school and the alumni is over. Bierman felt it was important for the recent graduates to know that the Career Planning & Placement Office is available to them now and in the future.
Among the guests for the evening, was Elena Bondarenko, a Fall 2012 graduate of FIU Law. She said “it was so wonderful to see everyone and to celebrate finally reaching the finish line. I will always treasure the memories of this evening – the time spent with other students and faculty, that became a second family to me.”
