Friday, May 12, 8:30 a.m.
Folsom Field, CU Boulder
Speaker at 2017 Commencement: Kate Fagan
The stadium gates will open at 7:00 a.m. the morning of the ceremony. Guests should be in their seats by 8:15 a.m. in order to watch the student processional into the stadium. Early arrival guarantees the best seating. No tickets are required for the ceremony.
Senior Class Coucil requires the help of CU students to write and speak a spoken piece for the graduation commencement video. The goal of the spoken word piece is to elicit nostalgia from the graduating class while also remarking on how much you’ve learned here and what you will take with you in the future. You could remark upon the importance of knowledge, the many connections made, and/or the memories made. However, try to have a common theme throughout. The feeling should be nostalgic for your time spent here at the University of Colorado while optimistic about the future.
The video itself will probably be about 3 minutes so your spoken word piece should take about 2 to 2 minutes 30 seconds to read aloud. E-mail your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org in the body of the e-mail so that we can avoid complications with attachments. Please submit your entry by March 13, 2017. SCC is looking forward to hearing your pieces!

This unique scholarship is given to a deserving future buff that one day will grow to love CU as much as you do. With this scholarship program students have a chance to give back to the CU community by allowing people to attend the University of Colorado.
