Departmental Receptions

Commencement postponed until October 9–10

Departmental Receptions are an excellent opportunity for all graduating seniors, their families, and guests to connect with faculty and staff from their home department(s). Unfortunately, we are unable to hold in-person Departmental Receptions on Saturday, May 16 as planned, but some departments are planning virtual receptions on that date. Receptions for all departments will also be held on Saturday, October 10, following the on-campus Commencement ceremony. 

Saturday, May 16 schedule (please check back if your department is not here; we are in the process of adding more). Zoom information will be provided to students by the individual departments or you may reach out to the contact person (if listed) for Zoom information.
