University will celebrate 3,800 grads at Winter Commencement
Two of the proudest days of the year are coming soon as Sacramento State stages Winter Commencement for nearly 3,800 eligible students – the highest number for winter graduation in the past five years. Seven ceremonies on Friday, Dec. 16, and Saturday, Dec. 17, will be held during Sac State’s final scheduled Commencement at Sleep Train Arena.
Sacramento Mayor-elect Darrell Steinberg, who will be sworn into office Dec. 13, will speak at the College of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies ceremony Dec. 16. And the College of Business Administration ceremony will feature the college’s six “Golden Grads,” as graduates from the Class of 1966, attired in special gold gowns and mortarboards, celebrate the 50th anniversary of their own commencements.
The University is requiring tickets for guests attending the ceremonies; participating graduates can claim up to 12 complimentary tickets for their guests on the Commencement website. Sac State will continue to feature a live-stream feed of the ceremonies with remote- and replay-viewing, and there will be an inaugural live-stream viewing party on campus.
Sac State’s social media channels – including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and now Storify – will capture all the pride and joy of Commencement in photos, videos, and more.
