Cornell University's 2013 Graduation Weekend is May 24, 25, 26. Congratulations to our graduates!
Several events are happening throughout the weekend. The two largest are Senior Convocation (with an invited guest speaker) on Saturday, and University Commencement on Sunday. Graduates receive diplomas at their college/department on Sunday afternoon, following University Commencement.
(Note: Some departments have events planned for Friday or Saturday, so consider this when planning your travel itinerary. Diplomas are distributed on Sunday, even for those departments with events on Friday or Saturday.)
Please visit the Commencement website for weekend events, how to get here, where to stay, where to eat, where to park, arrangements for mobility-impaired guests, and detailed information & schedules for events mentioned above.
PARKING: Follow directions to "Cornell University, Ithaca NY 14853" then follow campus-area signs to available parking locations on campus. The Commencement website contains weekend parking instructions, especially the park-n-ride system for Sunday when central campus roads are closed for buses & pedestrians. Please familiarize yourself with special parking & seating arrangement for mobility-impaired guests and submit your request accordingly.
We look forward to celebrating the fun, festive weekend with our graduates and proud families!
