Congratulations graduates! The Library and Information Science Faculty invite you to graduation on May 8th. There are three ceremonies:

  • 2:30 p. m. [ending by 3:30] Departmental Graduation in SOE 120. There is little pomp but a certain amount of circumstance. You are acknowledged and applauded and you receive some nice parting gifts. Meaningful (usually short) speeches, pictures with faculty, and cake! You should be dressed in business casual. You must register here. Most LIS faculty will be in attendance.
  • 6:00 p.m. School of Education Graduation at the Coliseum. Must have a graduation robe for this one. There are speeches and you are called up to the stage with lots of other grads and undergrads.
