Commencement Liturgy & President's Reception

The Commencement Liturgy & President's Reception will take place Friday, June 14. Activities begin at 4 p.m. in the Leavey Center.

Commencement Liturgy
The commencement liturgy for degree candidates from the undergraduate and graduate schools will be held at 4 p.m. on Friday, June 14, 2013 in the Leavey Center. The commencement liturgy, a valued tradition at SCU, is a time for giving thanks and praise for the gifts given and received while at Santa Clara and for asking a blessing on the graduates and their futures. Just as an incoming student's experience of Santa Clara University begins with an orientation liturgy, so too does that experience end within a liturgical setting, the Commencement Liturgy. Students of all faiths, their families and friends are invited to participate.

President's Reception
Immediately following the Commencement Liturgy, the graduates, along with their families and friends, are invited to a reception in their honor. Hosted by University President Michael E. Engh, S.J. 5:30 p.m., June 14, 2013 in the Mission Gardens.
