Graduation

The celebration.

Graduation is a weekend of celebratory events.  The University sets the Commencement date, which typically is a Saturday in mid-May. The Law School hosts a ceremony and reception that honors students who earn an academic award.  The Law School Diploma Ceremony is held in early in the morning.  Many students attend Commencement but it is at the Law School Diploma Ceremony where your name is read, you walk across the stage and your diploma is presented.
