Sociology Commencement 2021 - UPDATE

We are very much looking forward to joining together for our upcoming Sociology Virtual Graduation Celebration on Monday, May 17th from 10am-11:30am. (Pacific Time)

Our program is designed to honor our graduates of Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and Summer 2021.  Our graduates have each accomplished so much and we want to celebrate their remarkable achievements.

Come prepared to raise a glass and throw your cap (or whatever cap-like item you may have) into the air. 

There are two links for the event:

Student Link

Sociology students please consult your email from of Tuesday (5/11/21) at 3:51pm for the student Zoom link where you will be able to join in, see your friends and chat with them live during the event itself.

At the end, we will have a live toast and cheer your achievements followed by various chat rooms for you to connect with your friends, faculty and staff.

Graduates, please update to a recent version of Zoom, so you can have the ability to select into your chat rooms of choice at the end of the event.

Guest Link

For all family and friends of our graduates, we have a second link that is available for you to view the event via YouTube along with your student and celebrate in parallel.  

We will have a pdf program of the event on our website on Monday that will include the students names listed (like the program you'd receive if we were in Zellerbach).
