Share the joy of 5,000 graduating seniors with their 22,000 guests as they leave their UMass Amherst student days and launch their newly minted alumni lives. To ensure smooth sailing on their departure date, Friday, May 11, we need you to usher, aide, marshal or golf cart for the success of this important event.
You’ll see degrees conferred, flags unfurled, and mortarboards tossed into the air. In appreciation for your service to the University, you will receive a commemorative glass, lunch, and an opportunity to enter a drawing for our thank you gifts.
