A guide for family, friends, and students of the Class of 2014


Boola Boola!

Activities have been planned for students and their guests from Saturday, May 17 through Monday, May 19. The Commencement ceremony takes place outdoors on our historic Old Campus on Monday, May 19 at 10:30 AM. Individual diploma ceremonies follow immediately in each of the residential colleges and the graduate and professional schools.

I hope this website will help you plan an enjoyable few days in New Haven to celebrate the remarkable achievement of Commencement. Families will receive additional information on special performances and Commencement-related services in March. Students received Commencement information in February, including instructions on ordering a cap and gown.
