Time: 2:00 pm (check-in & line-up at 1:30 p.m.)

Location: NIU's Boutell Memorial Concert Hall

Every spring, the Political Science Department holds its own commencement to celebrate the accomplishments of our students. Our ceremony is separate from the large ceremony where the College awards degrees to hundreds of BA and BS graduates. The departmental tradition is a more personal opportunity to recognize individual students with a certificate and some words about their past accomplishments and future plans. It also provides wonderful photo opportunities. Members of the Political Science faculty, dressed in academic regalia, participate in the ceremony to honor the achievements of our graduates. Graduates enjoy a chance to share the hour-long event with the students and faculty whom they know best from their years at NIU.

Please RSVP by Friday, April 27th and include the number of people who will be attending, including you. Seating is unlimited. We ask that graduates arrive for check-in and line-up no later than 1:30 p.m. in cap and gown.
