Congratulations to our Spring and Summer 2016 graduates!

2016 Micro Undergraduate Ceremony.jpg


Microbiology Graduation Ceremony

Each spring and fall semester the department recognizes the graduating Microbiology seniors. Microbiology undergraduates planning on graduating in the summer semester are invited to participate in the spring ceremony, which is held in the afternoon of the day of the spring semester Commencement.  Friends and family of graduating seniors are invited to attend the ceremony.  The format of the ceremony consists of opening remarks and introductions, some light-hearted entertainment, a brief talk by a distinguished alumnus, and individual recognition of the scholastic and personal achievements of each student in attendance. Students interested in participating in the ceremony must complete a questionnaire that can be obtained in the Microbiology office. The graduation ceremony is followed by an informal reception where students’ families can meet faculty and staff of the Microbiology department.
