2011 Undergraduate Commencement and
SBS Senior Celebration
May 13–14, 2011
This year, for the first time, Undergraduate Commencement, at which degrees will be conferred, will be held on a Friday evening. The official ceremony will take place on Friday, May 13 from 5:00–6:30 p.m. in Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium. Click here for more information.
After the enthusiasm displayed last year for the individual College and School ceremonies at which seniors were individually recognized and awarded a commemorative UMass medal (pictured here), these more personalized ceremonies will again take place in several different campus facilities at various times. The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences will conduct its Senior Celebration at the Mullins Center on Saturday, May 14, 2011 from 12:30-2:00 p.m.
Robert S. Feldman, dean of SBS, will officiate. The audience can expect to hear meaningful and memorable commentary from a faculty member and student from each department and program. Each senior's name will be announced, by department, and photographs will be taken while the graduates receive their medals and shake hands with College leaders.
Seniors: Please plan on attending both ceremonies with your families. Each has been created to make your send-off memorable and fun.
