The ELS Language Center held a graduation ceremony October 17 in the Kirkhof Center.

It was the first graduation and awards ceremony since the center moved into AuSable Hall in August. President Thomas J. Haas addressed the audience and said the partnership between Grand Valley and ELS Language Center brings international students to campus and allows “for life’s adventures.”

“You have developed language skills here at Grand Valley that will help you in the next steps that you are going to take,” Haas said, adding that ELS Language Center students and Grand Valley international students represent more than 80 countries on campus.

Students earned certificates for completing the course, which teaches them reading, writing and English language skills.
