Convocation for the College of Humanities and Social Sciences
Congratulations, Class of 2016!
NOTE: The spring convocation dates on this page are for the Class of 2016. The university has not yet released the 2017 spring convocation dates.
The college hosts two convocations for graduating students. Both convocations are in the EagleBank Arena (formerly Patriot Center). No tickets are required. Our ceremonies:
- Convocation for students receiving degrees in the humanities or interdisciplinary programs
- Convocation for students receiving degrees in the social sciences
During the ceremonies, the names of graduating students are read as they cross the stage. Students are congratulated by the dean and department chair and have their pictures taken by a professional photographer.
See the links in the sidebar to learn more about each of the convocations.

We look forward to seeing all of our graduates and their families and friends at the upcoming convocations!
