Is your student graduating this year? The 2016 Commencement website is a helpful resource to assist you in making plans to attend your student’s graduation celebration events. “Families and friends, you too are to be celebrated,” says Provost Jeff Van Duzer, “as you’ve supported your student in countless ways throughout his or her university career.”
