Commencement of the Graduate School will be held on Saturday, May 14, 2022, at 3 p.m.
The academic procession for Commencement will leave from the Webster Center and begin promptly at 2:40 p.m. The exercises will be held in the tent on the Upper Athletic Fields and will last approximately 2½ hours. Family and guests attending the graduate ceremony should be seated by 2:30 p.m.
Organizing a procession of more than 600 master’s degree recipients takes at least one hour. Therefore, we ask that all degree candidates assemble on the track in the Webster Center by 1:40 p.m., where beverages will be available. The class photo will be taken in the Staake Gymnasium at 1:30 p.m., just prior to assembling for the procession. Please wear your robes for this photo.
Please be aware that Babson’s bachelor degree ceremony will be held earlier in the day on May 14. The undergraduate ceremony will conclude by 12:30 p.m., and the Commencement tent on the Upper Athletic Fields will be reset for the graduate ceremony.
NOTE: Guests will not be allowed to enter the Commencement tent until 1:45 p.m. to prepare the tent for the master’s degree ceremony.
