Commencement 2018

The College of Education hosts two events during the University’s Commencement weekend.

Our Graduation Celebration takes place on the day BEFORE the University Commencement, which is on Friday, May 11 at 4:30 p.m. in McGuirk Alumni Stadium, and our Senior Recognition Celebration takes place on the day AFTER the University Commencement.

Event One

Graduation Celebration

THURSDAY May 10, 2018   Doors open at 5 p.m.

The Graduation Celebration is a festive gathering of the College of Education’s graduating graduate students, their families and friends, and our faculty and staff. It takes place in the Campus Center Auditorium and features, in addition to Opening Remarks by Dean Gerstl-Pepin and others: the Stage Stroll, in which each graduating graduate student has an opportunity to stroll across the stage, shake hands with the Dean, his or her advisors and concentration coordinators, and have official photos taken;  bountiful appetizers;  and a finale that is guaranteed to make everyone get up and move!

You won’t wear your cap and gown to this event because our Graduation Celebration is a PARTY.

Details about the Graduation Celebration coming soon.

Event Two

Senior Recognition Celebration

SATURDAY, May 12, 2018  Bernie Dallas Room, Goodell Building    Doors open at 8:30 a.m.

Graduating seniors in the College of Education’s early childhood education program are recognized for their achievements in a small, meaningful event held in the stately Bernie Dallas Room in Goodell Building in the center of campus.

Graduating seniors arrive by 8:45 a.m. At 9 a.m. a formal procession of seniors dressed in caps and gowns, and led by Dean Gerstl-Pepin and other faculty members, begins, accompanied by celebratory music. As the procession enters the Bernie Dallas Room, all family members and guests rise - and applaud and take photos! The graduating seniors take their places in the front of the room and ceremonies begin. A light breakfast buffet takes place following the event.
