Ujima to Celebrate Student Achievements at Fourth Annual Rites of Passage Dinner on June 10

The Ujima Program, Pasadena City College’s community of educators and learners committed to the academic success, personal growth, and self-actualization of African-American and other students, will be holding a yearend celebratory dinner on June 10 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Creveling Lounge inside the PCC Campus Center.

The event is free, open to the PCC community, and will include a dinner, an Ujima student procession, and awarding of Kente cloths and certificates.

"The Ujima End-of-the-Year celebration is a truly wonderful, student-centered, student-planned, and student-presented event,” said Chiara Thomas, coordinator of the Ujima Program.

The Ujima Program Logo “This event encourages students to celebrate their individual and collective academic achievements. For many students of color, the Ujima Program and programs offering similar support are critical to finding success in meeting their higher education goals. We hope every interested community and campus member will join us on this momentous occasion."
