ASU Spring Graduation Set for May 15
Angelo State University will conduct its spring commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 15, in the Junell Center/Stephens Arena, 2235 S. Jackson St.
Graduates of the College of Business and the College of Education will receive their diplomas during a 10 a.m. ceremony. Graduates of the College of Liberal and Fine Arts, College of Sciences and College of Nursing and Allied Health will receive their diplomas in a 2 p.m. ceremony. Close to 550 students will graduate during the two commencement exercises.
The spring commencement speaker will be U.S. Congressman Randy Neugebauer of Lubbock. The congressman’s address will continue the university’s practice of inviting elected representatives from home districts of ASU students. Approximately 2,000 students from Neugebauer’s district attend ASU.
The commencement exercises will conclude two days of graduation-related events on the ASU campus. At 10:30 a.m. Friday, May 14, ASU’s Air Force ROTC Detachment 847 will conduct its spring Commissioning Ceremony for four graduating cadets in the C.J. Davidson Conference Center inside the Houston Harte University Center, 1910 Rosemont Drive. Each cadet will receive an appointment as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force.
Also on that Friday, the Department of Nursing will conduct its annual Pinning Ceremony at 6:30 p.m. in the Junell Center/Stephens Arena. Pinning ceremonies became a U.S. tradition in the early 1800s to mark students’ completion of nursing education and entry into the profession.
All the spring graduation activities are open free to the public.
