Summer Commencement ceremony moved indoors

The University’s summer Commencement ceremonies will take place indoors at Hamilton Gymnasium rather than outdoors on Carnegie Green because of forecasted heavy rain in the Denver area Aug. 15. Weather experts are predicting a 65 percent chance of rain and high temperatures in the 60s Friday.

The academic procession will begin at 8:40 a.m. and the Commencement ceremony will start at 9 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 15, at Hamilton Gymnasium (2201 E. Asbury Ave.). Hamilton is a 14,000-square-foot facility adjacent to the Ritchie Center on the DU campus. It will accommodate approximately 3,000 guests. No tickets are required.

Professor George Potts, former interim dean of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, will address the graduates.

The number of students eligible for graduation this summer includes 172 receiving undergraduate degrees and 498 receiving graduate degrees, including 65 doctoral and six law degrees. Not all students eligible for graduation are expected to attend the ceremony.

Directions and parking information are available at the Commencement Web site, which will offer live streaming video of the ceremony.
