graduation ceremony


Every year at the Honors Convocation ceremony, The University of Michigan’s brightest students are recognized for their academic rigor and grit. However, this year proves to be a special occasion, considering it’s the 90th anniversary of the event. Since its origination in 1913, the Honors Convocation ceremony appreciates students from each college within all three of the University’s campuses. Beyond the traditional lineup of respected speeches from acclaimed Honors students and professors, this year, guests will also enjoy a word from our very own Mary Sue Coleman. In addition, the ceremony will include special performances by The School of Music, Theatre & Dance, as well as the presentation of three prestigious academic awards: 


This year, Honors Convocation will be held on Sunday, March 17, 2013 and will take place at Hill Auditorium. Doors open at 1:15p.m. and seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The ceremony will begin at 2:00p.m. and will last approximately one hour and fifteen minutes.

After the ceremony has concluded, all guests are encouraged to make their way over to the Michigan League for a reception, and the opportunity to meet President Coleman, as well as other big names in the academia world.

Although business casual attire is recommended, you may want to dust off your cap and iron your gown just to recognize this historic event!
