Winter Undergraduate Convocation 2018

Friday, December 14, 2018, 2-4:30 pm

Centennial Hall

Congratulations graduating seniors! You and your guests are invited to the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Winter Undergraduate Convocation. This ceremony is an opportunity to celebrate your accomplishments with your classmates, family, and friends and includes a procession where you will be individually recognized.

Guest tickets

Each graduate is allotted up to 6 guest tickets so that family members and guests may attend. The event is free, but guest tickets are required to enter the hall. Doors open at 1 pm.

We will also host a livestream of the ceremony in the Social Sciences Building, Room 100 (across from Centennial Hall). Keep in mind that the video feed provided there may actually be a better view of the stage and your walk because the video camera will offer a close shot of you. You may request additional livestream tickets (above your 6 ticket allotment), but availability is not guaranteed.

Guest tickets will be available to you as soon as you complete your online RSVP for the ceremony.


Graduates must pick up their guest tickets from the Dean's Office (Douglass Building, Room 200W) before 5PM on Wednesday, December 12th.
