Events for Parents


Because the University graduates several thousand students each spring, we do not hold an all-campus graduation ceremony. Each college within the University schedules its own commencement, giving students the opportunity to walk across the stage individually, in the presence of their own faculty and college administrators. Also, each college designates its own commencement speaker.
