Moody College Graduation Ceremony

What will the graduation ceremony entail?

Moody College’s graduation ceremony held at the Etter-Harbin Alumni Center is an intimate and highly personal event that graduates and their guests get to experience together, rather than the traditional auditorium format that has separated students from their family and friends at this most important moment. 

Throughout the entire ceremony, loved ones will have the unique opportunity to stand just feet away to share in the joy of their graduate up close. They will progress together through the alumni center to a formal stage, where graduates will be congratulated by deans and recognized for their academic achievements. Treasured professors and advisors will line the way to cheer them on, and they will receive professional graduation photographs as they leave the stage.

Live and pre-recorded speeches will be ongoing during the ceremony. After, graduates are invited to enjoy refreshments, mingle and celebrate with their classmates, professors and friends at a reception in the alumni center.

A live stream of the event will be available for loved ones who are unable to attend in person (link to be posted here and on the Moody College of Communication homepage.
