The 145th Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2015 will be Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 11:00 am on the Quad in the center of our picturesque campus.
During the ceremony, President Carmen Twillie Ambar will address the graduates, families, and friends of Cedar Crest. You will hear from wonderful speakers including students, faculty, and staff. Our Commencement Speaker will be Cynthia Newman, 1978 Cedar Crest College Alumna.
A ticket is required for seating under the tent for Commencement. Each graduate will be given 6 tickets. All other guests will be able to view the ceremony in other viewing areas. Please plan accordingly. Although tickets are required to sit under the tent, seating is unassigned and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests should refrain from saving seats and should only sit in areas that are not reserved. Graduating students who require handicapped seating or access must note this information on the Commencement Attendance Form. Graduating students must RSVP for their guests who need handicapped seating or access. This must be done through the Commencement Attendance Form in MyCedarCrest under the “Student Affairs” tab by April 12, 2015.
