Office of International Programs, USCIS Host Citizenship Day

AUBURN - The United States will proudly welcome approximately 50 new Americans who will take their oath of citizenship at Auburn University May 7. The swearing-in ceremony will kick off a day-long event celebrating citizenship.

The citizenship ceremony, which is open to the public, will take place at 11 a.m. in the Foy Auditorium. Dr. Fred Kam, executive and medical director of the Auburn University Medical Clinic, will provide a keynote address. Kam, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, first came to the U.S. as an international undergraduate student.

In the afternoon, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services employees will be available for consultations with individuals who have pending immigration cases. Appointments must be scheduled in advance through the InfoPass web site. When selecting an appointment location, participants should choose the Auburn Mobile Services Unit. Appointments will take place in Foy Hall.

Individuals interested in learning more about the citizenship process are invited to attend a free workshop at 5:30 p.m. in Foy Auditorium. Parking for all events is available in the library parking deck and the Comer Hall parking lots on Roosevelt Drive.
