2015 Commencement on May 10

Cornell College will confer degrees on approximately 270 students during its annual Commencement ceremony at 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 10. The ceremony will be held outdoors, on the quad bordered by South Hall, College Hall, and Norton Geology.

Philip Venticinque, assistant professor of classics, will give the faculty address. Benjamin Rosen, a graduating senior from Portland, Oregon, will give the student address.

The Commencement ceremony is the final event of a weekend that celebrates the achievements of the graduating class. Other events include a reception for graduating seniors on Friday and the annual Baccalaureate service, which will take place at 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 9, in King Chapel. Seniors’ words of gratitude for family, friends, and mentors will be read at the service. The Rev. Catherine Quehl-Engel ’89, college chaplain, will deliver the sermon.

Commencement will include a traditional academic processional by faculty and will be followed by a reception on the pedestrian mall. In case of inclement weather, the commencement ceremony will be held in the arena of the Small Multisport Center.

Video of both Baccalaureate and Commencement will be streamed live.
