Commencement is Coming!
Ready or not, graduation is just around the corner. From now until the Big Day, the Office of Alumni Relations in coordination with the Commencement Committee will provide you with reminders and tips for graduation. Please be sure to read your email and remind your friends to do so as well.
Check your campus mailbox for the Commencement Information Booklet. If you are like the many seniors who only check their campus box once a semester, it is time to make your way to the student center. The Commencement booklet will tell you the dates of graduation, when to pick up tickets and all other important information that your parents have not stopped asking you about since September.
Commencement Breakfast: In keeping with a favorite tradition, a Commencement Breakfast may be offered on Saturday, May 17.
Don’t forget to give to Senior Circle!
