Graduation is the highlight event of the university community. It is a time for the faculty and staff to take pride in our students' accomplishments and congratulate them on jobs well done. Celebrating our graduates also provides us with opportunities to greet their proud families and friends.
RIT's Commencement Weekend offers individual recognition of each graduate at the college ceremonies held on Friday and Saturday, with university-wide recognition of all graduates at the Academic Convocation at 2 p.m. Friday, May 17, 2013. The official conferral of degrees occurs at the university-wide Academic Convocation while the individual recognition of graduates crossing the stage occurs at the college ceremonies. We encourage you to attend both the Convocation and your graduate's specific college ceremony.
All of us at RIT welcome you to our Commencement Weekend celebration on Friday, May 17, and Saturday, May 18, 2013. We are certain that you will come away with very pleasant memories and a strong sense of pride in being part of the RIT community.
We look forward to meeting and greeting you.
