What is LAS Convocation?

LAS Convocation is a separate event from the Undergraduate Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 14. Convocation only includes students from the LAS college and offers students and their guests a more personalized celebration of their achievement. The LAS Convocation will include greetings from the Dean of the college, a student speaker, and individual recognition of graduating students in attendance. Students will cross the stage as their names and a personal quote are read, and they will be recognized by the Dean and a faculty representative from their department. We estimate the event will last no longer than 90 minutes.
All are welcome to celebrate spring and summer 2022 graduates at the LAS Convocation ceremony on Friday, May 13, at 7 p.m. in Hilton Coliseum.
