Class of 2023 Commencement Exercises

Wittenberg University is looking forward to celebrating the Class of 2023 in our traditional location of Commencement Hollow at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, May 13. In the event of inclement weather, Commencement Exercises will take place in Pam Evans Smith Arena, located in the Health, Wellness & Athletics (HWA) Complex.

Cap/Gowns: Wittenberg will host a Countdown to Commencement event on Friday, February 17, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Geil Lounge on the lower level of the Benham-Pence Student Center. During this event, graduates will have the opportunity to place orders for caps and gowns, announcements, diploma frames, and other Commencement-related items.

Photography: Each year, the University partners with GradImages, a leader in Commencement photography, to take photos for purchase of graduates receiving their diplomas. More information on this service will be forthcoming.
