Department of History Commencement Ceremony

The Department of History holds its own commencement activities every spring. We are one of very few departments on campus that chooses to honor its graduates with their own commencement program.  Each student is recognized individually and is given the opportunity to say a few words to those in attendance. We feel that by giving our graduates the opportunity to celebrate their achievements in a more intimate atmosphere, with the faculty who have guided and mentored them, as well as with their fellow history students, their commencement experience will be more meaningful and memorable.  Information on our commencement activities is posted on the History website and on the bulletin boards outside the History main office in Chavez 400N.

How to RSVP

Please fill out the Graduating Student Profile Form and email it to Vicki Parker ( or deliver it to her office in Chavez 400N.
