Commencement

Saturday, December 14, 2013

E.A. Diddle Arena

Graduate and undergraduate degree candidates will be recognized individually within the college in which their degrees were earned. There will be no rehearsal for students; marshals will guide and provide instructions for the Grand March and individual recognition portion of the ceremony. Each ceremony is expected to last approximately 2 hours.

Undergraduate students who entered WKU during the 2004 fall semester and thereafter were given a freshman pin when they attended their Freshman Assembly. You are encouraged to participate in a tradition of wearing your pin at Commencement as a "bookend" to the pin you will receive at Commencement from the Alumni Association.
