The University has also planned several events throughout the weekend starting on Friday, May 27-Monday, May 30 that are open to ALL graduates.
We realize that some of these events such as the Last Trip to the Grotto and the Commencement Ball are geared to the undergraduates and were part of their normal senior week activities, however you are welcome to organize amongst yourselves groups to attend any of these events. Some events have a fee.
You can see a list of all the events HERE.
