The commencement ceremonies will highlight three days of graduation-related events at ASU. On Thursday, May 9, the Nursing Department will conduct the annual Pinning Ceremony for its graduates at 6:30 p.m. in the Houston Harte University Center. Nursing pinning ceremonies became a U.S. tradition in the early 1800s to mark students’ completion of their education and entry into the profession.

On Friday, May 10, ASU will host its third annual Raices y Sueños Graduation Celebration and Stole Ceremony at 10 a.m. in the Houston Harte University Center. Every graduating student, regardless of ethnicity, race or degree program, is encouraged to participate and celebrate their achievements with family and friends in a way that also acknowledges culture and traditions.

Then at 11 a.m. on Friday, ASU’s Air Force ROTC Detachment 847 will conduct its Spring Commissioning Ceremony for graduating cadets in the LeGrand Alumni and Visitors Center. The cadets will receive their appointments as second lieutenants in the U.S. Air Force or Space Force.

Many other departments and offices will also be conducting special graduation events and activities for their students across the campus throughout the week.
