Commencement Spring 2013
Commencement is a joyous occasion for graduates, parents, family members, and friends. We want to make sure you enjoy every minute of the ceremony without having to worry about details like parking and seating. We also want you to be well-informed about what a graduate needs to do before the big day. This Web site contains lots of information about the commencement ceremony.
Please read all material and complete all the required steps for graduation. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact my office for more information.
