Overview of Weekend
All undergraduate and graduate degree candidates are invited to participate in their college or school convocations. All students earning graduate degrees are invited to take part in the Graduate School convocation and in the convocations of those colleges and schools that include both graduate and undergraduate students in their ceremonies. Please call your college or school contact for further information.
Convocation ceremonies, hosted by the various colleges and schools allow components
of the University to celebrate the achievements of their graduates with individualized
honors and traditions. The convocations provide photo opportunities for the
candidates' families to capture moments such as the hooding of doctoral and
masters students or a Dean shaking students' hands as their names are called
and they walk across the stage.
For information on specific convocations and special events, please call college and school representatives directly in advance.
