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 could not attend in person, a recording of the event is now available on YouTube
