It’s happening! From July 22 - 24, thousands of 2020 and 2021 alumni will be joining us at the Universiade Pavilion (Butterdome) on North Campus and the Jeanne & Peter Lougheed Performing Arts Centre on Augustana Campus, to walk across the stage in their cap and gown and share this happy moment with family, friends and classmates — just as it was intended.
