We take pride in the fact that we are able to distribute diplomas to graduates who are qualified immediately after the commencement ceremonies, and because of this, the event has a high attendance rate.
The planning and orchestration of the commencement ceremonies have been tedious and equally money consuming, in as much as it is held on campus. Personnel are needed for a variety of function which traverse checking in students and prospective graduate, issuing diplomas, security duties, ushering and myriad of others. Our usual modus operandi is to utilize employees of the university who volunteer, to staff the event.
