Invitation to Northwestern University’s 164th Commencement
As we prepare to celebrate the Class of 2022, we invite you to join us in honoring the graduates during Northwestern’s 164th Commencement at 9 a.m. Monday, June 13. We are thrilled to bring the ceremony back to Ryan Field this year.
Commencement is a cherished event in the lives of our students, providing an opportunity to celebrate their academic accomplishments with their classmates, family and friends. These celebrations would not be possible without the commitment, care and guidance of our incredible faculty, and we encourage you to participate in Commencement and your individual school convocations.
Look for a communication to come soon from your school that provides details for ordering regalia for Commencement and the convocations. Orders must be placed by May 4. If you have questions about regalia, please contact your school representative.
We look forward to celebrating the graduates with you in June.
