Wildcat Sendoff




Wildcat Sendoff is a countdown to graduation offering seniors a variety of events designed to prepare you for your post-grad transition. It’s also a time to celebrate all of your accomplishments one last time before gathering together at graduation.


You’ve worked hard for several years to get to this moment and Commencement will be here before you know it. Don’t forget to prepare for the big day by registering to participate by May 6, attending the Commencement Fair on April 17 and ordering your cap and gown, which can be picked up either at the Commencement Fair on April 17 or from the Elliott Alumni Center on May 9, 10, 15 or 16.
