What to expect at the ceremony

The ceremony will last approximately one hour. Math awards will be handed out and the graduation address will be given by a graduating senior. You may sit with your family and friends to enjoy the ceremony. We will not line up for a procession prior to the ceremony, however you will be sent more explicit directions about one week prior to graduation. Finally, each graduate will walk across the stage as his/her name is called. You will receive a gift from the Mathematics Chair, Director of Undergraduate Studies, or Director of Graduate Studies. A reception will be held in the Campus Y and adjacent courtyard immediately after the ceremony ends.
