Class of 2023 Celebration



Dean Elizabeth Hudson cordially invites you to join the College of Arts, Media and Design community in celebrating the talented students of the Class of 2023.

During CAMD’s Class of 2023 celebration, each graduate will hear from Dean Hudson and guest speakers, have a moment in the spotlight as they cross the celebration stage to the announcement of their name, have commemorative photos taken, and receive a special college cord and gift.

The celebration continues after the recessional! All graduates and guest are invited to a reception immediately following the conclusion of our program, so please plan to join fellow classmates and guests at the Husky Hospitality Hub in the Cabot Physical Education Center, for refreshments, music and photo opportunities.
