|On Saturday, June 12, 2010, the University of Washington community will gather together in Husky Stadium to celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2010. |
With banners flying and playfully decorated caps on their heads, the degree candidates will take the field to the cheers and applause of nearly 40,000 family members and friends. The pageantry will continue with the entrance of the deans of the University's seventeen schools and colleges, followed by President Mark Emmert, the regents, and honored guests.
The ceremony begins with President Emmert's opening remarks, followed by the presentation of awards to distinguished students, faculty and alumni, remarks by student speakers, and a formal address by our commencement speaker.
