During UMass Amherst graduation weekend, there are two separate events for graduates and families: Undergraduate Commencement (Fri., May 12) and the College of Information and Computer Sciences Senior Celebration (Sat., May 13). We hope you will plan on attending both events to send off the Class of 2017 and celebrate their achievements.
University commencement is the official graduation ceremony at which degrees are conferred for every graduate on campus.
For more information, see the UMass Amherst Commencement website.
CICS Senior Celebration
Saturday, May 13, 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Recreation Center (across from the Mullins Center)
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.
