graduate in cap and gown.Just a reminder that Friday, May 6, 2011 is Commencement Day here at the University. Ceremonies begin in the Jon M. Huntsman Center with the procession at 8:20 a.m., and the program at 9:00 a.m. As usual Commencement Day will require temporary parking changes in order to accommodate our graduates and their guests on both Thursday, May 5th, and Friday, May 6th.

Graduates and guests are encouraged to use the campus shuttle buses and TRAX throughout the day to travel to the various commencement and convocation events.

Employees who regularly park in the lots around the Huntsman Center and Annex, should park in the Stadium parking lot. All of the regular shuttle routes will operate until 6:00 PM.

University employees are invited to attend the Commencement ceremony. Tickets are not required. The featured speaker will be Mitch Albom, world-renowned author, journalist, musician and speaker.

Additional information can be found on the Commencement 2011 website, and the Registrar’s Office Graduation page.

Congratulations graduates!
