Re: 2023 Commencement and Activities
Dear Graduating Students,
I am pleased to invite you to attend Caltech's 2023 Commencement exercises on the morning of Friday, June 16, 2023. The program will include a colorful procession, a speech by keynote speaker Danielle Allen, and the conferral of degrees by President Thomas F. Rosenbaum.
Commencement starts promptly at 10 a.m., so graduating students will need to report to the marshaling area in proper academic regalia no later than 9 a.m. BS candidates will meet at Parsons-Gates for a group photo at 8:45 a.m.
You can find more information on the ceremony, celebrations, and additional activities for you and your guests at commencement.caltech.edu. I would also encourage you to attend our upcoming Grad Fair event on Wednesday, April 12, 2023, on the Hameetman Center Patio, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Grad Fair is a one-day event that will provide you with access to all the vendors and offices supporting commencement in one location, so that you may take care of everything from ordering your regalia through the online system to confirming your participation in commencement and having your cap and gown portrait taken. There is no fee to sit for your portrait, and you can purchase the portraits at a later date.
The activities and programs around commencement offer a memorable conclusion to your years at Caltech. I hope you will take time to review all that is offered and participate in this celebration of your accomplishments.
Chair, Convocations Committee
