Because of the pending demolition of the Georgia Dome, Georgia’s State’s commencement site for the past nine years, the university must move the ceremony for bachelor’s candidates to the McCamish Pavilion at the Georgia Institute of Technology this year. The commencement ceremony for College of Arts and Science undergraduate students will take place at 3:30 p.m., on Wednesday, December 13, 2017. Candidates will be recognized individually on the stage of the pavilion.
Master’s degree students will be recognized by the college on Monday, December 11, in the Student Center East Ballroom (33 Gilmer St.). The event begins at 3 p.m. (student check in at 2 p.m.). The hooding ceremony for Ph.D. candidates will be on Thursday, December 14, 2017, at 7 p.m. in the Rialto Center.
