Graduation

Graduation CeremonyCommencement is a long-standing tradition that celebrates the achievements of our graduates.  It is the culmination of our students' hard work over the course of the last four years (and sometimes even longer), and in the case of our graduate students, intensive study over a shorter period of time.
