Dear Degree Candidates:
Congratulations on your academic achievements and your upcoming graduation.
I look forward to seeing you at Commencement. The ceremony allows all of us to salute academic excellence and personal achievement, and is a time of great celebration for the College, our graduates, and their families.
There will be two identical ceremonies on Saturday, May 18, 2013, in the Ira S. Wilson Ice Arena. One begins promptly at 10:00 am; the other begins promptly at 2:00 pm. Students will be assigned to each ceremony by academic major. Further details about Commencement can be found on this site. The Dean of the College and the Director of Campus Scheduling and Special Events are partnering to produce a dignified and memorable Commencement for you and your families.
On Friday, May 17, at 2:00pm a rehearsal for graduation will be held in the Wilson Ice Arena. More information regarding rehearsal and other important activities and dates are given on this web site.
You have the distinction of graduating from one of the most selective public liberal arts colleges in the country. I am proud of you.
Christopher C. Dahl
