Commencement Scheduled for May 11


The University will celebrate and honor spring graduates at 2 p.m. May 11 at Stokes Stadium.

Jacqueline Wilson, who will be graduating with a Bachelors of Arts in business administration, will be the student speaker.

Alumna Kia Noelle Johnson will give the commencement address. She is director of the Atlanta satellite of The University of Texas at Austin’s Arthur M. Blank Center for Stuttering Education and Research, a clinical research institute with the mission to change the world for people who stutter.

Doors will open at 1 p.m. for seating on a first-come, first-seated basis. For those who cannot attend in person, a livestream will be available on YouTube. More information can be found here.

In the case of inclement weather, two commencement ceremonies will take place due to the large number of graduates and the smaller seating capacity available in Pershing Arena. A decision to move the ceremony indoors will be made no later than 5 p.m. May 8. Each graduate will receive an email with notification if the inclement weather plan has been implemented for commencement. More information regarding the inclement weather plan can be found here.
