Make Your Reservations Today
Sending Ceremony & Reception
Friday, May 12, 2017
There are no tickets required for the Sending Ceremony, but we do request that graduates submit a reservation using the form on the right.
The Sending Ceremony is our baccalaureate celebration that all graduates, Bachelor’s and Master’s, are encouraged to attend with families. The ceremony celebrates our Avila Heritage and has become an important part of our Avila tradition. Graduates process into this ceremony as a class. The 35 minute ceremony is followed by a big reception (food, beer and wine are served) where it has become common that families have the opportunity to meet faculty and staff.
Graduates are asked to dress business casual, no caps and gowns. Graduates should meet in the Pavilion at 5:30 p.m.
Please plan to make this Avila celebration a part of your graduation weekend.
