December Ceremony


All December degree recipients are welcome to attend the all-university Commencement ceremony in May. An invitation to the May ceremony will be included with your diploma, which will be mailed in February.

The Chancellor’s Recognition Ceremony for December 2013 Degree Candidates

Saturday, December 7, 2013
Graham Chapel
1:30 p.m.
A dessert reception in the Danforth University Center Tisch Commons immediately follows the ceremony.

Directions for the Candidates

The grand marshal will announce names as each candidate walks across the stage to shake hands with the chancellor. Since all are degree candidates, no diplomas or diploma covers will be distributed. Each candidate will, however, receive a small remembrance from the chancellor.

  • Caps and gowns will not be worn by degree candidates at this ceremony; business dress is recommended.
  • Degree candidates should arrive at Graham Chapel by 1 p.m. to pick up their name card and be seated by degree.
  • Invitations are mailed to all December degree candidates in early October. RSVPs are requested. Family and guests are welcome. No tickets are required.
