Keep calm and count down to graduation 2013

CELEBRATION: The bagpipes will return again for Commencement 2013!
It's the most wonderful time of the year at Post University ... graduation season! We've made our list and checked it twice, and are counting down the days until it's time to celebrate the Class of 2013.

Now just 36 days away, May 4th, 2013 will mark our 123rd Commencement. But it will also be a day of many firsts.

It will be the first time we recognize our undergraduate and graduate students in two separate, more intimate ceremonies. It will be the first time many students from our Online Education Institute visit our campus and finally meet the professors, staff, and classmates who have played such a significant role in their journeys.

And finally, May 4th will mark the celebration of our largest, most diverse graduating class to date (just when we thought the Class of 2012 was unbeatable)!

Of course, some commencement staples -- both new and old -- will remain the same. Cap-and-gown clad students will march across the stage that makes their accomplishment a reality. Families and friends will come together to acknowledge the culmination of their loved ones' achievements.

For the fourth year in a row, Post University will also host a supplementary virtual commencement via live video feed, so that those who cannot attend in person have the same opportunity to share the moment with those closest to them.

But don't get too caught up in the countdown to the big event -- you can start celebrating right now! Connect with us on social media to share updates on your final moments as a Post University student; let us know your plans as you prepare for the ceremony; and of course, share photos of the most special moments of your graduation journey.
  • Join our Facebook event to interact with your fellow graduates before, during, and after the ceremony.
  • Join the conversation on Twitter using hashtag #PostUClassof2013 to share your updates and see classmates' updates.
On behalf of all the faculty and staff at Post, congratulations to the Class of 2013, and we can't wait to see you all in May!
