Special Event: Naturalization Ceremony at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
On March 28, 2014, UNC Global in conjunction with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will host a naturalization ceremony recognizing approximately 30 of North Carolina’s new candidates for U.S. citizenship. The ceremony will take place at 10 a.m. in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium at the FedEx Global Education Center. Representatives from the USCIS Raleigh-Durham Field Office will administer the oath of allegiance and present the candidates their certificates of naturalization. Ron Strauss, chief international officer, will provide a short keynote address. The ceremony will include a presentation of colors by the University’s ROTC color guard and a performance of the national anthem by Cadence, one of UNC’s all-female a cappella groups. Representatives from the USCIS Raleigh-Durham Field Office will be on hand after the ceremony to answer any immigration and citizenship related questions the public might have. This event is open to the public, and UNC Global invites members of the community to join these candidates, their families and friends in celebrating their newly obtained United States citizenship.
