2012 Undergraduate Commencement and
SBS Senior Celebration
May 11–12, 2012
This year the official Undergraduate Commencement, at which degrees will be conferred, will take place on Friday, May 11 from 4:00–5:30 p.m. in Warren McGuirk Alumni Stadium. Click here for more information.
The individual College and School ceremonies, at which seniors are individually recognized and awarded a commemorative UMass medal (pictured here), 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 12, 2012 from 1:00-3:00 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.

Seniors: We want to create a slide show to entertain family and friends before the SBS Senior Celebration Ceremony on May 12. Please send a high-res .jpg of yourself....somewhere on campus, on a study abroad experience, during an internship, or doing something UMass-related. Include your full name, major, and a sentence or two about what made UMass special for you. No images will be accepted after April 9. The slide show is now viewable on the SBS YouTube station.
