ATTENTION Spring 2015 Graduates:

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation from Penn State!  This is a wonderful occasion not only for you and your family, but for all of us in the College of IST.  The Spring 2015 commencement ceremony will be held Saturday, May 9 at 3:00 p.m. at Eisenhower Auditorium.

The ceremony will be available via live streaming/video recording (link will be provided soon).

To honor our graduates and their families, we will host an ice cream social prior to the ceremony in Au Bon Pain Café and the West Atrium of the IST Building from 12:45 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Tickets are not required for either event, however we do ask that you RSVP to help us with logistics.

For the commencement ceremony, graduates must arrive at Eisenhower Auditorium and check in no later than 2:30 p.m. The processional will begin promptly at 3:00 p.m.  The ceremony will include:

  • Special remarks by the commencement speaker, Mr. David Rusenko, CEO and co-founder of Weebly
  • Individual recognition of each graduate while crossing the stage
