Commencement Invitation

To the Penn Community:

Penn’s Commencement is a wonderful opportunity to gather together in celebration of the impressive accomplishments of our students.  On behalf of the Trustees, Officers, and Deans and their faculties, we would like to invite all members of the Penn community to attend the University’s 250th Commencement on Monday, May 15, 2006.  We are also pleased to be celebrating the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin’s birth at this historic ceremony.

The Academic Procession steps forth from the Annenberg Center at 9:00 a.m., then pauses for approximately 45 minutes in front of College Hall to applaud the graduating students as they pass through our ranks.  The procession then proceeds to Franklin Field where the ceremony begins at 10:15 a.m.

If you wish to attend the festivities, please seek advance approval from your supervisor to assure that the business needs of your department will continue to be met.  Whether you wish to join the festivities around Locust Walk and College Green, or come to the ceremony itself (tickets are not necessary), we very much hope that you will join us in this University-wide culmination of the academic year.

            Amy Gutmann, President         

            Ron Daniels, Provost                    

            Leslie Laird Kruhly, Secretary
