SCU Commencement

Graduate Commencement

Graduates- Please remember to submit your Response Form no later than May 24, 2013.

Commencement Liturgy

Just as an incoming student's experience of Santa Clara University begins with an orientation liturgy, so too does that experience end within a liturgical setting, the Commencement Liturgy. Students of all faiths, their families, and friends are cordially invited to participate in this celebration. It is a time for giving thanks and praise for the gifts given and received while at Santa Clara and for asking a blessing on the graduates and their futures. The Commencement Liturgy is at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, June 14, 2013.

If you are interested in volunteering to work at the Commencement Liturgy, please visit the following webpage:
