2019 University College Commencement

Thursday May 9, 2019 | 6 p.m. | Hendricks Chapel

University College students work long and hard on the requirements for an associate or bachelor’s degree and the pride and satisfaction of finally reaching that goal is worth celebrating. All UC students who successfully completed their studies in December 2018, May 2019, or August 2019 were invited to participate in Commencement and celebrate their achievements with their family, friends, professors, and classmates.

The University College Commencement for part-time students will take place on Thursday, May 9 at 6 p.m. at Hendricks Chapel. A reception will take place immediately following the ceremony on the Quad in Tent A. Graduates are welcome  to bring their guests to the reception, which is always a festive affair filled with grateful students, proud families, and a tempting array of hors d’oeuvres.

If you would like to attend, you must R.S.V.P. by April 29 for you and your guests. Free parking is available in the Irving Garage. Detailed directions can be found at http://parking.syr.edu/irving-garage-directions/. Elderly and disabled individuals may park in the Quad 1 lot, but you must indicate your special needs when you R.S.V.P.
