Volunteer for "Grad Walks"

Please consider volunteering to help the Class of 2021 celebrate its accomplishments during the series of “Grad Walks” taking place May 17-19, 2021. These modified Commencement ceremonies will give each graduate — at both the undergraduate and graduate level — an opportunity to have their name read, walk the stage, and have their photo taken. 

Volunteer duties for Grad Walks will vary from checking in graduates to seating them in the SERC. More volunteer duties may arise as details of the ceremonies are completed.
