Fall 2018 Commencement: Warrington ceremony to recognize individual graduates

Warrington undergraduate and graduate students – you may have heard about the University of Florida’s updates to the commencement ceremony. The University will hold two ceremonies for students graduating in the fall of 2018. The first is a University-wide gathering on Saturday, December 15 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for graduates and their guests where degrees will be conferred. The second is a college-specific ceremony where graduates will be individually recognized.

The Warrington College of Business’ ceremony will be held on Sunday, December 16 at 10 a.m. in the Exactech Arena at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center. At this ceremony, we are excited to celebrate you and everything that you have accomplished as a student at the Warrington College of Business. This ceremony will be much like the commencement event you are familiar with – you will wear your regalia, walk across the stage as your name is called, your friends and family cheering as you appear on the jumbotron, and shake the hand of one of our College’s deans.

“The Warrington College of Business is looking forward to recognizing the accomplishments of all of our graduates on December 16. We’re excited to share this joyous celebration with you before you dive into the successful careers we know you’ll have.” – Dean John Kraft

As the event is finalized, we will communicate updates with you via your UFL email and on the Warrington Commencement website. To read more about the commencement changes, please visit the UF Commencement page. We look forward to celebrating you, fall 2018 graduating Business Gators, on December 16.
