The end of the road is almost here for more than 500 Texas A&M University-Kingsville students who are candidates for graduation, Friday, Dec. 14, in two ceremonies at the Steinke Physical Education Center.
Students in the Colleges of Agriculture, Natural Resource and Human Sciences and Arts and Sciences will graduate at 1 p.m.
Students in the Colleges of Business Administration, Education and Human Performance and Engineering will graduate at the 4 p.m. ceremony.
Frank B. Ashley III, Vice President of Recruitment and Diversity for the Texas A&M University System, will be the guest speaker for both ceremonies.
All graduation candidates are expected to be present during the commencement to receive their “diploma” in unofficial form.
There will be reserved seating for degree candidates and faculty only. All other seating will be on a first- come, first- serve basis.
Candidates will assemble in the Steinke Physical Education Center exactly one hour prior to graduation on Friday, Dec. 14, 2012.
There will be no university-wide rehearsal, so graduates must check in with their respective college to determine if there is a rehearsal planned.
If you are wanting a copy of the graduation ceremony on DVD there will be an order table that will be set up in the foyer of the SPEC. DVD’s will be $20 each, including tax and shipping, and can be prepaid for by cash or check.
DVD’s will be shipped to your home and should arrive within six weeks. For further information, contact the Art, Communications and Theatre Department Office at (361) 593-3401. There will also be photos taken of the graduates prior to graduation courtesy of Flash Photography, university’s official photographer.
Once grades are submitted and graduation verified, diplomas will be available Monday Jan. 7, 2013 through Friday Jan. 18 for pick up in the Javelina Enrollment Services Center. The center is located on the first floor of the Memorial Student Union Building. Also, a photo ID will be required in order for the student to pick up his/her diploma.
