Preview of Commencement 2007
Approximately 4,800 students will graduate from UC Santa Barbara in eight official ceremonies on June 10, 15, 16, and 17. They are expected to draw more than 38,000 family and friends to the campus over Commencement Week.
As is his custom, Chancellor Henry T. Yang will shake the hand of each student graduating from the College of Creative Studies (CCS), the College of Engineering, the College of Letters and Science, the Donald Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, and the Graduate Division.
The CCS will launch the week on June 10, with an 11 a.m. ceremony in Campbell Hall. Alumna biologist Marlene Zuk, ’77, currently a UC Riverside associate vice provost, will speak.
The Bren School of Environmental Science and Management’s official graduation ceremony is on June 15 at 10 a.m. in Donald Bren Hall. Its guest speaker will be Jerome Ringo, former chair of the National Wildlife Federation.
Parking spaces are available in the 10 Parking structure on the east side of campus. Parking will be free for graduates and their guests, said B.J. Danetra, Bren events coordinator. Call her at (805) 252-0552 for more Bren information.
Commencement visitors and participants will enjoy free parking, and shuttle service, the weekend of June 16 and 17, when six separate ceremonies will be held by the lagoon.
