Department of English Commencement
Where: Dickson Court North
Congratulations, class of 2024! We look forward to celebrating with you at our departmental commencement event in June.
EVENT DETAILS AND EXPECTATIONS:
The departmental event is a smaller, more personal ceremony for our graduates and their families. You will be able to celebrate your accomplishment with your fellow classmates and the English department’s faculty and staff.
Our departmental event includes:
- Addresses from the Department of English chair, featured faculty speaker, and featured alumni speaker.
- Announcement of Dept. of English creative writing awards, essay contest winners, and departmental honors designations.
- Individual recognition of graduates: your name will be called and you will cross the stage for a ceremonial photo with the chair. We ask that all graduates and their guests remain until the end of the ceremony to honor each student as their name is announced.
- Faculty receiving line: after all graduates have received individual recognition, our faculty will form a receiving line to congratulate you on your accomplishments. The end of the receiving line marks the end of our ceremony.
Our departmental ceremony typically lasts 1.5 – 2 hours. Please plan accordingly when making restaurant reservations, travel plans, etc.
Our departmental ceremony does not include College Honors or Latin Honors announcements.
