Hundreds of graduates and their families will gather for a cherished milestone at December Graduation, which will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, in the Marano Campus Center convocation hall and arena.
Commencement is a celebrated occasion for graduates, family, friends, faculty and others to mark the outstanding achievements of our students. Due to a high demand that needs to be accommodated, each graduate is allotted five tickets for the ceremony. These tickets are attained when a graduation candidate picks up his or her cap and gown at the College Store.
The formal Commencement ceremony features a procession of faculty in academic robes, concise acknowledgement of students graduating with honors, and graduates crossing the stage in recognition of their achievement. A professional photographer will document students as they participate. More details for visitors can be found on the Guest Information page.
Seating for our guests is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors with physical disabilities who will need special seating or other arrangements should call 312-3358 in advance.
A campus map with Commencement traffic and parking information is available online (575 KB pdf).
Those unable to attend can watch it as a live Webcast or either live or rebroadcast on local cable. You also can share your excitement via the #ozgrad hashtag on Twitter.
