KU’s annual Commencement ceremony is less than two weeks away! The 141st Commencement will take place on Sunday, May 19 at 10:30 a.m. Alumni are invited to the Hill to celebrate the newest class of graduates. We also invite you to reminisce about your own Commencement.
Submit Commencement photos
Our Facebook albums featuring alumni weddings and Jayhawk babies have been wildly popular, so we created another album for Commencement photos through the years. Alumni Association staff members kicked off the album with pictures from their own graduation celebrations–let’s just say the photo provided by our esteemed president, Kevin Corbett, isn’t quite what we expected. Click here to check out the album.
Want us to include your photo? Email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include your full name and class year. And if you’ve got a funny story or a touching memory from Commencement, tell us about that, too. We’ll add it to our photo album and then you can like it, share it or tag yourself in it.
Graduating students are invited to celebrate with us on Stop Day at the annual Grad Grill. This rite of passage features free barbecue from Bigg’s and the opportunity to mingle with fellow graduates before starting your final Finals Week.
The event takes place on Friday, May 10 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Adams Alumni Center.
Commencement Open House
On the day of Commencement, the Adams Alumni Center will host an open house from 12 p.m.-3 p.m. Graduates and their families can stop by for a champagne toast and a light snack, and alumni are welcome to drop by and offer congratulations.
Congratulations, class of 2013!
