Important Changes to May 2015 Undergraduate Commencement

We heard you! Based on overwhelming feedback from Class of 2015 graduating students, President Weisenstein has approved two, undergraduate commencement ceremonies for this spring. The undergraduate ceremonies will be held outdoors at Farrell Stadium, rain or shine. No tickets are required for the outdoor ceremonies.

If severe weather is expected, the ceremony will be canceled and graduating students will be invited to Hollinger Field House for an abridged program where they will hear the commencement speaker and receive their diploma covers. Due to limited seating in Hollinger Field House, only graduating students will be admitted.

Guests may choose to view the ceremony streaming live at:

Saturday, May 9, 2015, 10:00am, Farrell Stadium

  • College of Business & Public Affairs
  • College of Education
  • College of Health Sciences

Sunday, May 10, 2015, 10:00am, Farrell Stadium

  • College of Arts & Sciences
  • College of Visual & Performing Arts

The graduates will start to process at 9:30am before the start of the ceremony. Please be in your seat before the procession begins.

Details forthcoming about parking, speakers, and other undergraduate ceremonial logistics.

Graduate Commencement: Monday, May 11, 2015, 7:00pm, Hollinger Field House
