Attention Faculty!

(April 7, 2006)

Commencement Weekend is May 20 and 21, and President Kermit L. Hall and our 2,500 graduates and their parents would love to see you there!


  • Graduate Ceremony, Saturday, May 20, Recreation and Convocation Center, 9 a.m. Be in the gym (Physical Education Building) by 8:15.
  • Undergraduate Ceremony, Sunday, May 21, New Library Lawn, 10 a.m. Be in the West CETL Room (Science Library) by 9:15.
  • Order your regalia at the bookstore. If you want to order a specific hood, place your order by April 14. All orders placed after April 14 will come with UAlbany hoods.
  • Last day to order regalia is May 10. (UAlbany hoods only)
  • For the first time, beautiful, custom UAlbany doctoral regalia is available. If you have a doctorate from UAlbany and would like to place an order, contact Dixie Botts in the bookstore (442-5698) by April 14.
  • Send a note to the Commencement Office, UAB 403, or (if you haven't already), letting us know that you plan to march and which ceremony (both would be greatly appreciated). We want to reserve the appropriate number of chairs.
  • We need eight faculty members in academic regalia to shake hands with the graduates as they come out of the gym the morning of graduation. These faculty members will follow the last students to the library lawn and join the rest of the marching faculty. If you're willing to take on this assignment, please call Linda Wheeler at 437-4907 or e-mail
