Program Graduation Receptions
All CAPLA Graduating Students are invited!

During the week leading up to the May 16 Graduation Ceremony, CAPLA faculty and staff hosted program receptions for graduating students. Students joined their fellow graduating classmates, faculty and staff; picked up your unique CAPLA graduation gift; took photographs; and enjoyed refreshments. All gatherings were held at CAPLA in our Underwood Sonoran Garden from 9-10 a.m. to allow for faculty and staff to recognize our graduates in a more intimate setting (socially distanced, of course).
