This ceremony gives graduates the opportunity to be recognized individually by college faculty and administration. Each graduating student's name is read prior to the presentation of a University of Massachusetts medal and a special farewell gift from the college. Graduates' time on stage will be broadcast on large video screens and captured by a professional photographer. Students may bring as many guests as they would like. No tickets are required.

For those who cannot attend in person, this year's celebration will be live-streamed, and recorded for viewing after the event.
