Faculty and staff invited to participate in CALS pre-commencement reception

Faculty and staff members are welcome to attend the CALS Pre-Commencement Reception on Saturday, May 11, before the 12:00 p.m. Commencement Ceremony. The reception will be in Allen Centennial Garden and will start at 9:30 a.m. and go until about 11:00 a.m.

At approximately 10:45 a.m., the CALS ceremonial march from Allen Garden to Camp Randall will begin. Graduates interested in walking with their classmates to Commencement will gather for a picture and then walk to Camp Randall. Faculty and staff members are welcome to join. The group will walk to Camp Randall going down Linden Dr., over the pedestrian bridge to Old University, and then down Randall.

This is a great opportunity to welcome both undergraduates and graduates into the alumni community. Students regularly say that they appreciate faculty and staff taking the time to attend. Contact John Klatt at if you have questions.
