The History Department ceremony is in May, but previous December, current May, and soon-to-be August graduates are encouraged to participate. Students will receive an invitation which will tell the day and time of the celebration. Usually a reception takes place starting at 8:30 a.m. with refreshments followed by the hour-long ceremony. Graduates are to be at the appointed time by 8:45 a.m. in cap and gown to process to the stage for the ceremony. After the departmental celebration, you may then proceed to attend the university graduation.
