Carry an International Flag at Undergraduate Commencement

Commencement 2014 will continue the tradition of including a parade of international flags for the countries represented by graduating students. If you would like to take part as a flag-bearer in the processional during the Undergraduate Main Ceremony on Friday, May 9th please contact Emily Morse at by April 30, 2014.

Graduates carry the flags into the stadium at the beginning of the ceremony, place the flags in special stands on the field, and then join their classmates for the remainder of the ceremony. Flags are first-come, first-served and any additional volunteers may march beside the flag carrier. If you have any questions, please call Emily at 413-577-1101.
