As Commencement approaches, the university looks forward to welcoming family and friends to our beautiful campus to celebrate with the Class of 2014. In order to allow these guests to gather safely at Commencement Hollow for the Ceremony, we will be closing East and West Campus Drives at 9:30 a.m. on May 17.
With Commencement less than 100 days away, the soon-to-be-graduates have selected Olympic Gold Medalist and award-winning sports journalist Donna de Varona to give the university’s Commencement address on Saturday, May 17.
A leading activist for sports and fitness for youth, de Varona has provided expertise as a consultant to the United States Senate on several landmark pieces of legislation, and she served five terms on the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. The San Diego, Calif., native has been recognized by leaders in both major political parties, with appointments to commissions by Presidents Ford, Carter, Reagan, Clinton and Bush.
Come join us on Thursday May 15th from 6-8 pm at the Bayley Alumni House to mix and mingle with peers, faculty, and staff and of course your commencement speaker Ms. de Varona.
