It is with great enthusiasm that The Hispanic Policy Network (HPN) in collaboration with the Sociology department will host the Inaugural Naturalization Celebration: Ceremony of Citizenship on Thursday, October 8th, 2015. This is the first time the United States Department of Immigration will perform a Naturalization Ceremony on our campus. With 50 inductees taking the Oath of Allegiance as their final step to become Citizens of the United States of America, we can expect this event to be of great significance to the participants, their families and the Texas State community. As a vital member of the Texas State University system, HPN would be honored to request your presence at this ceremony. The induction will take place from 10:00am to 11:00am in the Archway Mall near the Undergraduate Advising Center. There will also be a continental breakfast available on site one hour prior to the start of the event. Please join us to help celebrate this joyous occasion.
