Commencement Greeting

105th Commencement Ceremony

Dear Degree Candidates, Families, and Friends of the Class of 2017:

On behalf of President Charles Flynn, Ph.D., Provost Sarah Stevenson, Ph.D., members of the Board of Trustees, and our faculty, I invite you to join us at the College of Mount Saint Vincent during Commencement Weekend on May 19 and 20, 2017.

The Commencement Ceremony procession for bachelor’s and master’s graduates will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 20, 2017.

The Baccalaureate Awards and Hooding Ceremony will begin at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, May 19, 2017 in Hayes Auditorium, Grace Center.

Following the Baccalaureate Awards and Hooding Ceremony, bachelor’s, master’s graduates, and their guests are invited to a Baccalaureate Mass, which will begin at 5:00 p.m. in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception, followed by light refreshments in Smith Hall, all located on the second floor of Founders Hall.

For our students, graduation brings years of hard work and study to a close, and marks the first step toward new and even greater challenges. Parents, families, and friends can be genuinely proud, as we are, of all that they have accomplished in attaining their degrees.

I congratulate the graduates and look forward to the future success of our newest alumnae/i.

Kelli Bodrato
Dean of Students
