CoB Spring 2012 Convocation
Friday, May 25, 2012
On May 25 the College of Business will hold its spring convocation, celebrating the
accomplishments of its spring and summer graduates. If you are registered to graduate
in spring 2012 or will graduate in summer 2012 we invite you, your family and your
guests to attend the ceremony.
This event is wheelchair accessible. For event center seating questions please contact the event center box office at 408-924-6360. Graduating students that need special accommodations should send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
Unlike the SJSU Commencement (on May 26) the College of Business spring convocation is only for College of Business students. During the ceremony, each student's name will be announced when then they cross the stage and they will be congratulated and photographed with the Deans from the College. Your official SJSU diploma will be mailed to you at a later date by the University.
If you participate in the CoB spring convocation you can still participate in the SJSU Commencement on May 26.
Below is a FAQ section that should answer your questions about the CoB convocation ceremony. Should you need additional information, please send an email to email@example.com. In the meantime you can view the Fall 2011 Convocation picture album here.
We look forward to seeing you on Friday, May 25!
P.S. Please consider sending an email invitation to your favorite professor to attend the ceremony. You will not have to purchase a ticket for them, but they are as eager to cheer your accomplishments as your family and friends!
