The 141st Plymouth State University Commencement Ceremony will make history Saturday, May 19 as the institution holds its first unified graduation in decades by joining its undergraduate and graduate ceremonies.

Former Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) President Andrew Falender will be the commencement speaker. During his 23-year tenure, AMC tripled its membership, increased its endowment ten times over, modernized and built dozens of AMC facilities and substantially increased volunteer programs and activities, providing many more people the opportunity to enjoy the out-of-doors and enhance their understanding of nature. Falender said he is humbled to provide the commencement speech at PSU.

The commencement ceremony starts at 10 a.m. at Currier Memorial Field off Route 175-A in Holderness, adjacent to the Foley Gymnasium. In the event of rain, events will be held in various campus venues according to Colleges and majors. More information can be found on the Commencement Inclement Weather Plan page.

Commencement Day

Prior to Commencement — provided we have good weather or only light rain, all participating graduates will meet at the HUB Courtroom at 8:45 a.m. on May 19, 2012. The graduates, led by faculty and class officers, will walk together through campus, across the bridge to the PE Center and proceed into the Field House (see campus map.)

The ceremony begins with a processional at 9:45 a.m. in which honorees, faculty and graduating students file into their seats in Currier Field. Once everyone is seated, the formal portion of the ceremony, which includes the conferring of degrees, begins at roughly 10 a.m.

In the event of pouring rain, all graduates must report directly to their inclement weather sites at 9:30 a.m. See more information about the Inclement Weather plan, which includes alternate indoor locations and video viewing areas.

If you are unsure that morning, call the PSU Alert Line at (603) 535-3535, the PSU operator at (603) 535-5000, or check the Plymouth State University website.
