Congratulations to all of USD's soon-to-be graduates! After so much hard work, personal growth and accomplishment, you are about to celebrate with family, friends and our entire USD community by participating in commencement. We hope you plan to attend some of the many events that surround this important day, from Senior Night to Honors Convocation, dinners and receptions, baccalaureate, law school, or graduate schools mass, and the procession across the stage at commencement. This guide gives you an idea about what to expect at commencement, how to prepare, what to wear, how to line-up, and ways you might celebrate leading up to and during commencement weekend. We look forward to seeing you in May!
