The Indiana University Winter Commencement Ceremony will be held on Saturday, December 15, 2012. The Ceremony is a nice event - and a fun way to celebrate graduation. There is plenty of room for guests. No tickets are required - and parking is free.
|8:00 a.m.||Assembly Hall doors open|
|8:30 a.m.||Candidates begin lining up in the adjoining Gladstein Fieldhouse — (look for the SLIS Banner)|
|9:00 a.m.||Procession of Graduates into Assembly Hall begins|
|10:00 a.m.||Ceremony begins|
|11:30 a.m.||Ceremony concludes|
Accessibility Needs: Guests who use wheelchairs and who contact (812)855-9260 or (firstname.lastname@example.org) in advance will be issued a special IU parking pass. This contact number can also assist with other needs.
The ceremony has wonderful music and speakers. SLIS graduates will process in together following the SLIS Banner. SLIS master degree graduates are easily identified by the yellow trim on their hoods. The trim color of yellow represents the field of Library and Information Science. SLIS Ph.D. graduates have royal blue trim (for the Doctor of Philosophy degree - regardless of academic field.) The inside of the hoods are red and white to represent Indiana University.
To help celebrate:
1. Stop by the SLIS Office any day from Monday, December 3 to Friday, December 14. In recognition of your achievement, SLIS has a keepsake gift for those graduating. Plan to stop by the SLIS Office to pick it up.
2. Also, stop by the SLIS Information Commons any time Wednesday, December 5 to Friday, December 7. We will set up a table in the SLIS Information Commons with candy and other items to help celebrate both the end of the semester - and your graduation.
