Celebrate With Friends

Convocations are ceremonies in which students are acknowledged in a smaller setting. These are coordinated by each individual school or college and are separate from Commencement.

Graduation celebrations are events to honor students in special interest groups and their achievements. They occur before or after a student’s convocation and are an additional way to celebrate.
