LOS ANGELES—The graduate students of Armenian Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) are pleased to host the 15th Annual Graduate Student Colloquium in Armenian Studies on Friday, February 24. The event will be held at UCLA in Royce Hall 314 from 9:30am to 8pm, and includes a catered reception.

This year we are looking forward to celebrating the fifteenth year with a piano recital by Los Angeles pianist Harout Senekeremian, and a look back on the history of the colloquium,” said Jesse Arlen, Director of the UCLA Graduate Student Colloquium in Armenian Studies.
