University of Minnesota graduates will walk across stage this spring after all
February 1, 2023
The University of Minnesota's Twin Cities campus announced Tuesday that it will hold two large graduation ceremonies this spring and a series of smaller events that allow students to be individually recognized.
After the university announced this fall that renovations at the 3M Arena at Mariucci could alter its graduation plans, some students and parents called on the U to ensure that its ceremonies include an opportunity for students to walk across the stage to receive their diplomas.
The university announced Tuesday that it will hold degree conferral ceremonies at Huntington Bank Stadium for graduate and undergraduate students on May 12 and 13, respectively. Individual colleges and departments will also hold their own events that allow graduates to hear their name announced, cross a stage and have a photograph taken. Those events will take place May 11 through May 13.
