UW-Madison student facing deportation to Nigeria receives her doctorate in pharmacy
A University of Wisconsin-Madison student who's been facing deportation to Nigeria has received her doctorate degree in pharmacy.
Tope Awe, 24, was detained last spring. And after numerous requests from her fellow students, Tope was allowed to complete her final year of pharmacy school on campus while wearing an ankle monitoring bracelet.
She graduated May 15, and is now preparing for the state exams that would let her become a licensed pharmacist.
