Sociology Commencement 2021
Date: Saturday, June 12, 2021
Time: 9:00 AM PDT (main ceremony)
Location: LINK TBA
The day’s virtual events will begin with the university’s main commencement celebration from 9:00-10:00 a.m. PDT, followed by pre-recorded school and college ceremonies.
The College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) will be doing our celebration by division rather than individual department; Sociology is a part of the CAS Social Sciences division. Students will have an opportunity to personalize your individual recognition “Grad Slides”. To register for commencement or to personalize your slides, please refer to the email from UO commencement staff or use the links on the main commencement website.
Students whose final term was/will be Fall 2020, Winter 2021, Spring 2021, Summer 2021, or Fall 2021 are eligible to participate in this year’s virtual ceremony. You will only need to register once to be included in our division ceremony. Eligible students will receive more information from the Division of Student Life via their UOregon email address during spring term, including the relevant links to opt in to commencement activities.
Following the UO commencement ceremony and Grad Roll presentation, a video message from our faculty will be posted to the Department of Sociology homepage.
Graduates who wish to participate in this year’s commencement activities must opt in by May 10, 2021. Those who opt in can participate in their school or college virtual commencement ceremony, and will receive a special celebration package prior to commencement day. If you wish to purchase regalia for your commencement day, packages can be purchased from the UO Duck Store website, and shipping is available worldwide.
UPDATE: IN-PERSON, ON-CAMPUS ACTIVITY!
This year’s in-person activities will take place at the Eugene campus on the afternoon of June 12. Graduates who opt-in to the in-person activities can participate in the Grad Parade followed by a Stage Procession. The Grad Parade is an iconic part of each year’s commencement day. Students will parade down 13th Avenue from Matthew Knight Arena toward the Memorial Quad. Immediately following the Grad Parade, graduates will then proceed to a designated area on the Memorial Quad where they will cross a stage as their name is read aloud and then have their photograph taken. The Stage Procession will be livestreamed so families and friends can watch online.
More information on all of this year’s in-person and virtual commencement activities is available on the commencement website.
