The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will hold a virtual convocation ceremony at noon on Friday, Dec. 18, to celebrate new graduates.
The video will be streamed on the CAES YouTube channel at youtube.com/user/ugaagandenvironment.
Students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are encouraged to tune in to celebrate the new alumni as they are recognized by name.
“While we can’t gather as a large group in person, we still want to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates,” said Joe West, interim CAES dean and director. “This is a pivotal moment in the lives of our students, and we want to assure them our college will always be there to cheer them, no matter the circumstance.”
The convocation will include remarks from West as well as CAES Alumni Association President Caroline Lewallen.
There are approximately 111 undergraduate and 91 graduate candidates for graduation from CAES this fall.
