Michigan State University (MSU) is home to over 50,000 students, and the Class of 2022 is set to be one of the largest in MSU’s history. Graduation is a time to celebrate all of the hard work, dedication, and achievements of the graduating class. As the Class of 2022 prepares to take the next step in their lives, we take a look at what they can expect from their MSU graduation in 2022.
The MSU commencement ceremonies are held in the Jack Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing, Michigan. This is a large, multi-purpose facility that can hold up to 12,000 people in its auditorium. In addition to the main commencement ceremony, there are also smaller ceremonies for individual colleges and departments.
The commencement ceremonies usually begin in the morning and go until early afternoon. The ceremonies typically include a welcome from the dean and address from the university president. There are also a few musical performances and some special awards are presented. After the main ceremony, the graduates will move outside for a photo opportunity and to throw their hats in the air.
The traditional MSU graduation regalia includes a black cap and gown, but other colors are available. The graduates can also choose to wear honor cords and tassels, which signify academic achievement.
One of the highlights of the ceremony is the commencement speaker. Previous speakers have included celebrities and politicians, such as former President Barack Obama and actor Will Ferrell. The speaker is usually chosen a few months before the actual ceremony, so keep an eye out for announcements from the university.
After the ceremony, the graduates can attend a number of events, including a dinner, a dance, and a reception. There are also a variety of activities for the graduates and their families, such as museum visits and campus tours.
MSU is also home to a number of student organizations and clubs. During the graduation week, these clubs often host events to help the graduates celebrate their achievement. These events can include things like special dinners, comedy shows, and even concerts.
MSU’s graduation ceremonies are an important milestone in the lives of the graduating class. The ceremony marks the end of four years of hard work and dedication, and it’s a time for the graduates to look back on their accomplishments and look forward to their future. MSU’s graduation in 2022 promises to be an exciting and memorable event.
