Department of Sociology recognizes the importance of graduating from college in the lives of students and families. Each spring, the department hosts a reception for graduating concentrators. The reception is historically in an on-campus building on the afternoon before University Commencement. Graduating seniors (including December graduates from the previous calendar year) will receive more detailed information about the event in mid-March.
The University's Graduate's Guide to Commencement provides details on academic dress and the University Commencements in December and May.
