• 2014 Commencement Weekend

  • Senior Day 2014

    Senior Day 2014

    Thursday, March 6 and Friday, March 7
    10:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

    We will take over the entire lobby and garden level of East Hall for 2014’s Senior Day. Offices will be in one place, on one day, so you are not running all over campus trying to get everything checked off your "things to do before Commencement" list.

    Stop by anytime either day and get ready for Commencement.

    Plan on being at Senior Day for about an hour. Each senior will receive a checklist of required items to complete prior to graduation. There are several REQUIRED elements of Senior Day in order to be eligible to graduate, and this is the ONLY time and location to pick up tickets for the Commencement ceremony. Students who are unable to attend or choose not to attend are responsible for completing all graduation tasks on their own time.

    Order Commencement Tickets to Pick Up on Senior Day

    Online ticket ordering opens on Wednesday, February 5. All students requesting tickets to Commencement must complete the request form by Tuesday, March 4.
