With commencement right around the corner, excitement is in the air. Beginning on Thursday, the school is hosting an Awards Banquet at 6 p.m. May 26 at the Doubletree Hotel Grand Ballroom in honor of the graduating pharmacy Class of 2016. Filled with food, drinks, and exciting entertainment, the event is sure to send off our graduates with pomp and circumstance. This year, the ceremony features a toast to the Class of 2016 from Class President Kelsey Schwander, award recognition, and entertainment chosen by the graduating P-4 class.
Then, starting at 10:30 a.m. May 27, the school’s hooding ceremony and convocation kicks off at the Denver Performing Arts Complex in the Boettcher Concert Hall. Students and families should plan to arrive at the venue by 9:30 a.m., and may want to consider using alternative transportation to avoid parking fees.
This year, students, faculty, staff, and friends can join in on the celebration by sharing their memories with us by tagging #CUPharmGrad and mentioning @CUPharmacy and @CUAnschutz on Twitter and Instagram.
