Dear SoC students,

As President Schapiro announced in an email this week, we are delighted to celebrate our School of Communication Convocation in person in June.

Our current plan is to host the undergraduate SoC Convocation on Saturday, June 12 at 2 pm (CDT) at Ryan Field. The ceremony will be ticketed, and further information regarding the maximum number of tickets available will be released soon, but we expect at least two guests per graduate.

Safety measures will be in place in accordance with CDC, Illinois, and Cook County guidelines. We will limit attendance, maintain physical distance, require masks for all attendees, and strongly encourage attendees to be vaccinated and/or tested before the event.

The convocation ceremony will be livestreamed for those who are not able to join us in person.

In order to appropriately plan for the safest celebration possible, please let us know if you will attend the in-person SoC Convocation festivities on June 12. Students who are eligible to graduate received an email on April 9 with the link to RSVP for the ceremony.  If you plan to attend, please take a moment to place your order your regalia (cap and gown) by May 2.

We thank you for your patience as our plans evolve to provide a safe and enjoyable convocation for you. More information will be sent as it becomes available. We look forward to celebrating your accomplishments in June!
