Ready… Set… Commence!” Graduation Celebration

On May 3 and 6 get everything you need to cross the stage during Commencement

Mortar Board (UH)

The University of Houston College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences (CLASS) will host, “Ready … Set ... Commence!” All spring graduation candidates are invited to join Dean John W. Roberts at a pre-commencement day celebration of their achievements and future success.

“Ready ... Set ... Commence!” takes place May 3 and May 6. It functions as an opportunity for graduating seniors to pick-up graduation packets, verify pronunciations of names, decorate mortar boards (top of graduation cap) and pick up “walk cards,” the credentials required to walk across the commencement stage.  Attendees also can learn about graduate studies programs at UH and how to join the UH Alumni Association.

“We are excited to have this opportunity to provide our graduates with information and resources that make their graduation day less stressful,” Roberts said. “Being able to take care of the details in a more relaxed atmosphere will surely enhance their enjoyment of commencement.”

The CLASS graduate studies coordinator will be on hand to answer questions about graduate studies programs at UH. Participants will also be able to join the UH Alumni Association.

At 11 a.m. May 3 and 5 p.m. May 6 Dean Roberts will lead a toast to the CLASS of 2013.
