Three Services for May Graduation

Date: April 10, 2013

Andrews University’s Spring Commencement, scheduled for the weekend of May 3–5, 2013, marks a significant scheduling change. In order to provide more seating for graduates’ families, Commencement has been split into three separate services by school/college. Previously, Commencement was separated into two services: one for undergraduate and the other for graduate degree conferral.

The new schedule is:

8:30–10:30 a.m.
School of Health Professions
Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary

11 a.m.–1 p.m.
College of Arts & Sciences

2–4 p.m.
Department of Agriculture
Department of Aviation
School of Architecture, Art & Design
School of Business Administration
School of Distance Education
School of Education

Each year, the graduating classes have grown, bringing with them more family members who wish to attend Commencement. According to Dalry Payne, graduation coordinator, after the spring 2012 service the administration decided to add one more commencement service to allow each graduate greater access to tickets for family and friends. Currently, each graduate will be allocated a minimum of six tickets. Depending upon the number of graduates who march, there may be more tickets available.
