Post by Student Life »

Greetings! I hope everyone is safe and well and that you are conquering your final exams with ease.

As we prepare to gather as a community to celebrate your graduation in a most unexpected format, I want to share with you some additional details regarding the upcoming ceremony. Please share with your family, friends and colleagues so they too can participate on your special day!

1. Tune in on Sunday, May 17th at 3:00 p.m. for the initial broadcast of your Virtual Commencement Ceremony ... s/law.html

Watch the various segments including A Message from the Dean, the Conferral of Degrees, the Student Address, the Singing of the National
Anthem by our Student Singer, and the Awards announcements.

2. Post message/s to your personal social media accounts. Be sure the message is public, and please use the following hashtags at the end of your message:

#UBClassof2020 (primary hashtag)
#UBLawGrad2020 (secondary hashtag)

Using these hashtags will ensure your posts are seen by the larger UB community.

Messages posted to Twitter or Instagram during the virtual ceremony will be pulled into our virtual ceremony’s web page ... s/law.html, if they include the hashtags above.

You can also post your messages to Facebook or LinkedIn in the days leading up to Commencement or throughout the ceremony. Be sure to include our hashtags so we can find your posts and possibly share them.

Are you friends with your classmates on social media? Tag them as well in your post!
