Enjoy a special weekend in DC celebrating the academic accomplishments of the American University graduate in your life at this year’s commencement ceremonies. The weekend will include a range of events to honor graduates, including a Phi Beta Kappa induction ceremony and a baccalaureate service. And you definitely can’t miss out on the celebratory toast to graduates, where you can raise a glass to congratulate the AU grad you’re honoring! On Saturday and Sunday, you can attend the graduation ceremonies, where new grads will have their names called as they walk up to the stage to receive their diplomas. You’ll also hear from commencement speakers, including students and honorary degree recipients, as they address graduating students with a final lecture.
