Carry an International Flag in the Commencement Processional
The university will continue an exciting tradition at this year’s Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony. A parade of flags for the countries represented by our graduating international students will be a part the Undergraduate Commencement exercises. If you would like to take part in the processional on Friday, May 13, 2011, at 5:00 p.m., by carrying the flag of your country please contact Terry Sall at email@example.com by May 9, 2011.
Students who participated in the processional last year were thrilled with the enthusiastic welcome they received from their classmates and guests. Graduates carry the flags into the stadium at the beginning of the commencement ceremony, place the flag in special stands on the field, then join their classmates for the remainder of the ceremony. If you have questions, please call Terry at 413-545-4894. In circumstances when more than one person volunteers to do this for the same country, the first request will be accepted as the flag carrier, and others may march beside the flag carrier.
