More than 850 soon-to-be Washington State University graduates are expected to fill Beasley Coliseum alongside their family and friends for Fall Commencement Dec. 10 in Pullman.
This year’s ceremony is slated to begin at 10 a.m., with graduating students asked to arrive at least 30 minutes prior. The event is free and open to the public.
Event organizers are looking for volunteers to assist with this year’s commencement. University employees eager to assist with commencement are asked to contact Sarah Mahaffy, director of events for the Office of the WSU Pullman Chancellor.
Around 700 undergraduates are expected to attend alongside 110 master’s students and 37 doctoral candidates from across the WSU system. The annual fall commencement ceremony takes place in Pullman, with campuses having their own ceremonies in the spring.
A free shuttle for those attending commencement will run from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. and for two hours following the ceremony. Free parking will be available across campus, with shuttle pickup in the Yellow 4 lot behind the Lewis Alumni Centre.
The event will be live-streamed on YouTube via the Experience WSU website.
