If you have a student graduating this May - congratulations! This is a very exciting time and we look forward to celebrating with you and your student. Hotels in Abilene typically fill up quickly during Commencement weekend (especially due to two other universities also graduating students that day and the Western Heritage Classic which takes place that weekend), so make your reservations as soon as possible. You can can find hotel information here from the Abilene Convention and Visitors Bureau.
There are two Commencement ceremonies on May 12th. For undergraduate students:
- The 11 a.m. ceremony is for students graduating with a degree from the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Biblical Studies.
- The 3 p.m. ceremony is for students graduating with a degree from the College of Business Administration, the College of Education and Human Services, or the School of Nursing.
More details can be found on our Undergraduate Commencement Information Page. We look forward to seeing you on May 12th!
