The American University of Paris is excited to host its 2019 Graduation Gala at the prestigious Cercle de l’Union Interalliée the evening of the Commencement Ceremony. The event kicks off at 7pm with the New Alumni cocktail reception, sponsored by the President’s Alumni Advisory Council, followed by a three-course dinner and party. The evening is organized by Senior Class Representative, Jacqueline Wegwerth and Graduate Social Director Nicole Curren in collaboration with the Office of Student Development and is co-sponsored by the Student Government Association.

The Graduation Gala is an elegant evening for all students, graduating and returning. Your Student Government is dedicated to making sure this is a night you will never forget so please be sure to join us!

Important note: The venue will NOT admit anyone wearing jeans, sport shoes or casual clothing. A conservative jacket and tie is an absolute MUST for gentlemen. You will not be admitted to the venue if you do not adhere to the formal dress code, even if you have already paid -- no exceptions.


The graduation gala dinner is €50 for graduating students and €110 for guests. The party, which begins after the gala dinner, is free for graduating students and €50 for guests. There is also the option for a combination ticket for non-graduating students and guests to both events for €140. Tickets for dinner are available on a first-come, first-served basis with limited dinner seating (200 persons max).

You may purchase tickets here.
