Welcome Graduates and Guests!

Friday's ceremonies have been rescheduled to Sunday

The weather is always unpredictable during the month of May, and this year is no different. Due to the prediction of severe weather and the potential of lightning on Friday, we have rescheduled Friday’s commencement ceremonies to Sunday, May 17. Commencement ceremonies scheduled for Saturday will take place as planned.

While we realize the rescheduling of these ceremonies is inconvenient, the safety and comfort of our guests, students, faculty and staff is our highest priority.
