Commencement Headquarters is your one-stop online information access for Commencement weekend. Updates will be posted here – so check back often.

For those of us who work with your sons and daughters, these four years went by far too quickly. It seems only a short time ago that we welcomed them as freshmen and it has been a pleasure to serve as your parent contact with Centre. We are proud of them and are certain that a bright future awaits them.
