Western Colorado University is pleased to announce Commencement will be held Saturday, May 6, 2023, at 10 a.m. in the Mountaineer Bowl followed by a reception for students, families, faculty and staff.
Since this event will be held outdoors, our graduating students and their family and friends will experience Western’s beautiful mountain setting. Still, spring in the Rockies is fraught with unpredictable conditions. As we like to say, our best back up plan is be prepared for anything.
Guests are being asked to bring plenty of warm clothes and blankets for the ceremony, which should last about two hours. Sunny skies are the norm throughout the year in Gunnison, so sunscreen and sunglasses should be a part of preparation for a glorious day.
We will continue to provide updated information on this webpage so please check back regularly.
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, May 6!
