Overflow Announcement: Due to wonderful turn out we have opened overflow seating for the December Graduates' Recognition Celebration in Billings/Ira Allen Lecture Hall (1st floor of Ira Allen Chapel).  Live-feed of the ceremony will be broadcast in large screen format.

The December Graduates’ Recognition Celebration at the University of Vermont honors those undergraduate and graduate students who have fulfilled the requirements for their degree mid-year. The ceremony begins with an academic procession of the president, provost, trustees, honored guests, and faculty. The procession is led by the university marshal and the Pipes and Drums of Saint Andrew’s Society.

The ceremony includes an address by the president of the university and remarks by the provost and representatives from the:

  • Board of Trustees
  • Student Government Association
  • Graduate Student Senate

Degrees are not officially conferred until May.

Following the ceremony, everyone is invited to a celebratory buffet brunch at the Billings Library.
