During the ceremony, each graduate will be recognized separately and we will request a photo of you in advance to include in the presentation. Judy Genshaft Honors College Graduation is typically located in the Alumni Center in Traditions Hall. The date and time changes each semester and can be found in the Honor Roll once it is announced.
