International Flag Carriers

Flag Carriers Summer 2016


Tarleton is committed to being a globally-oriented university that welcomes students from a wide range of ethnicities, religions, cultures and life experiences. In celebration of Tarleton's community of international students, we proudly present the flags of their home countries at each commencement ceremony. Currently, we have students from 27 countries around the world.

The Office of International Programs is looking for flag carriers to participate in the upcoming Spring 2019's Commencement Ceremonies taking place on May 10 - 11, 2019.  All graduating students' countries of citizenship will be represented in a colorful procession of flags that celebrates the diversity of our student body. Ceremonies will take place at the following times:
