The Spring 2017 Hooding Ceremony is Coming Up Soon

If you’re graduating in spring 2017, the Graduate School hopes you’ll join us for the Spring 2017 Hooding Ceremony on May 11th in Thompson-Boling. If you plan to do so, we just ask a couple of things from you. Please RSVP to let us know you’re coming, to help us plan, by May 1st. Also, please review our pages on the hooding ceremony, so that you’ll know when you need to arrive, what you need to bring (and what not to bring), and what to expect. We look forward to seeing you all in your newly-acquired finery!
