Welcome to Commencement 2018
The Earlham community looks forward to you joining us on May 4 and 5 in the celebration of the 171st Commencement events honoring the Class of 2018. Both Baccalaureate and Commencement will be held on Saturday, May 5, with Baccalaureate at 10:30 a.m. and Commencement at 2:30 p.m.
Where to stay
We urge you to make your reservations directly with the accommodation of your choice as soon as possible. Sources for information on hotel/motel accommodations are the Wayne County Convention & Tourism Bureau and WayNet.
What to do
The Commencement weekend schedule is now available. We hope that graduates, families and friends will join us for meals on campus during the weekend. On Friday evening following the Phi Beta Kappa ceremony, graduates and parents will join us for the Celebration Dinner.
The Commencement breakfast buffet luncheon on Saturday are always an exciting, shared time together. Your graduate will receive complimentary tickets for all Commencement weekend meals, so you need to make reservations only for yourself and other members of your family via the Meal Reservation Form (pdf).
Grad Images will again be with us at the Commencement ceremony to take photographs of graduates as diplomas are awarded. Following Commencement, graduates will receive, at their home address of record, information on ordering Commencement photographs. Past graduates and parents have been pleased with the quality, variety and price of the photographs as well as the courteous service provided by Grad Images. This service provides an excellent option to capture this significant moment in your student’s academic career.
We look forward to being with you at Earlham as we celebrate the Commencement of the Class of 2018.
