Commencement ceremonies provide an opportunity to officially recognize and celebrate the student’s accomplishment of earning a college degree. Listen to Informania on Monday, April 27, to discover what’s included in a commencement ceremony, and what’s involved with making an event like this happen at UAA! We also explore the UAA graduate student “Hooding Ceremony.” Guests this week include Annie Route, Director of Student Life and Leadership, and Bridgett Dyson, Special Events Manager.

On today’s show, Annie mentioned the effort of a student to gather donated graduation gowns to bring to her home town in the Eastern European country of Moldova, where celebrating graduation may inspire others to attend college. Read more in the Green and Gold story, Sending UAA Spirit to Moldova.
A big thank you also goes to Facilities staff; and the many volunteers who play a big part in making this event a success!
