Recognizing the culmination of students’ hard work, the University of Houston C. T. Bauer College of Business celebrated Spring 2014 graduates during a commencement ceremony on May 10 in Hofheinz Pavilion on the UH campus.

The Bauer ceremony was part of a full day of commencement on campus, the university’s esteemed tradition of General Commencement, to honor all graduates and achievements in a grand celebration. More than 1,000 Bauer students from undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs participated in the Spring 2014 ceremony.

Out of twelve UH students who graduated with a 4.0 GPA, six were Bauer students, including Trung Le, Thanh Phan, Steven Thomsen, Thu Vu, Sooraj Bhaktavachalam, and Reem El-Agha, who were specially recognized this year at commencement.

UH System Chancellor and UH President Renu Khator honored the accomplishments of the graduating class with a keynote address. Bauer College Dean Latha Ramchand congratulated all degree candidates and presented them to the president for the bestowal of their degrees.

“Everything we do here at Bauer begins and ends with student success,” Ramchand said. “Seeing our students succeed and ultimately earn their degrees validates the work that we do as Houston’s business school. Our graduates go on to become active alumni who power the engine driving the Houston economy, thereby making a global impact.”
