Congratulations, Class of 2020!

To our graduating linguists,

In your time at U-M you have worked diligently and grown immensely. Some of you are the first in your family to graduate from college. Some of you have made unique contributions to linguistic research. Some of you have inspired your classmates with your leadership in extra-curriculars. Some of you will earn degrees with honors and/or distinction. Each of you has made an important and unique impact on your classmates and professors in the Department of Linguistics. We know this time is not what any of us expected, and we are incredibly sad to not be able to celebrate with you in-person. However, we are immensely proud of you and we will miss you dearly.

Congratulations and Go Blue!

You deserve as big a celebration as this time can give you!
