College Celebrations

Undergraduate and graduate students can join fellow classmates, faculty members, and college deans as we celebrate, reminisce, and look forward to your next adventures. If the event you are looking to register for is not available, we have reached capacity. We are evaluating additional opportunities and will inform you of any additions. Please note: we continue to monitor the latest on the pandemic, and as always, final decisions about campus events will be dictated by public health guidelines.

Undergraduate College Celebrations

Join your fellow classmates, faculty members, and college deans as we celebrate your accomplishments, reminisce, and look forward to your next adventures. Write about your fondest memories, most memorable professor quotes, Common Grounds coffee runs, and late-night study sessions, and send messages to your friends and professors on the Class of 2021 Memory Wall.

This two-hour celebration will kick off with the college dean’s opening remarks in recognition of our graduating seniors, followed by an informal social gathering in the tent and on the residential quad. The event will conclude with closing remarks by the dean and farewell wishes to the new graduates.

Although not required, students are invited to wear their caps and gowns.
