Congratulations to IDEA’s Class of 2018!

The events will be a special time to reflect upon stellar academic careers and accomplishments, thus far, and a time to celebrate the journeys the Class of 2018 will begin on college campuses this fall.  Congratulations to all 11 IDEA campuses that will graduate seniors this year:
