Countdown to Post University graduation 2012!

Attention soon-to-be graduates! You've probably had May 5, 2012 circled on your calendar for quite some time. It has definitely been on my calendar for many months. That's the day when the Post University Class of 2012 will graduate.

We've been preparing for commencement for several weeks now, and we wanted to give you an update on where our plans stand. Given that our graduating class includes traditional students from our Main Campus in Waterbury, Conn., as well as Online Accelerated Degree Program students, we have a number of things planned for our graduates.

Something new we've done this year is create a Facebook event for Post University Graduation 2012. Hit the page to let everyone know if you're going, and find out who will be there!

You can also use the Post University Graduation 2012 event page to help plan for and celebrate graduation, as well as interact with your fellow soon-to-be graduates. Keep an eye out for graduation updates, and feel free to ask any questions about commencement. We'll get back to you right away.

We're also hoping to use the Post University Graduation 2012 event page as a way to find some of the best stories of what life is like at Post University. So tell us, where are you from? What's your degree program? What's your best memory about Post University? Who would you like to thank for helping you along the way to graduation? Share your stories, memories, photos, and videos -- before, during, and after the ceremony.

Like last year, we will be broadcasting commencement live via a video feed on our website for those of you who can't make it to the ceremony. Be sure to tell your family and friends about the live stream too. We're setting up the feed now, so check back on our blog for more information on how to tune in to the live stream.

We'll also be creating commemorative 2012 commencement DVDs, which will include the entire commencement ceremony. They make a great keepsake or gift, and will save you from recording the ceremony yourself. We'll let you know when the online order form is up and ready.

The total number of graduates for the entire 2011-2012 academic year (which includes August 2011, December 2011, and May 2012 graduates) is 759. Of that number, more than 400 are from Connecticut. I'm proud of each and every one of our graduates, and I'm looking forward to celebrating this milestone with the Class of 2012.
