The Business Administration Major Haas Commencement

2019 Undergraduate Commencement MOVED to the Haas School of Business. 

Weather forecasts tomorrow morning indicate thunderstorms. The Greek Theatre cannot operate in severe weather.  As a matter of safety, we have moved commencement to the Haas School. We’ve looked across campus and there are no available facilities that can accommodate a group of our size under such short notice.
Therefore, we will make it work at Haas! Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding as we adapt to these less than ideal circumstances.
Please see the PDF below for details on commencement seating, viewing, and the reception.
