College of Arts and Sciences

Starting last year, our college met with the Graduation Office, the Graduate College, all university convocation coordinators and City of Norman safety officials to coordinate our ceremonies.

The college began the weekend with the annual Spring Doctoral Reception Friday evening. A crowd of more than 100, which included candidates and their guests, gathered in the Dale Hall Tower Community Room prior to OU’s commencement ceremony.

On Saturday, the college proudly partnered with the Graduate College to hold the first-ever convocation for master’s students. Not only was each graduate individually announced, but all were also recognized individually with a hooding symbolizing the attainment of advanced mastery in their respective fields.

Following the master’s convocation, the college held the largest undergraduate convocation in OU’s history. In all, more than 1,400 undergraduate students were awarded their diploma.

The college appreciates the patience and enthusiasm of all who attended our convocation events to joyfully acknowledge the work of our students. We also appreciate the time and efforts of our faculty and staff who were dedicated to creating a monumental event.
