The event kicks off at 19:00 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, Chiara Amor and Graduate Social Director Sarah Moussi 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!
