August 2013 & January 2014 Graduates
The College of Liberal Arts will be hosting its winter graduation ceremony in the Temple Performing Arts Center on Thursday, February 6, 2014 at 3:00 p.m. While the Temple Performing Arts Center is a magnificent new state-of-the-art venue, seating for guests will be limited and the event will be ticketed. At the moment, we are only able to guarantee three tickets for every graduate. We understand that many students would prefer to share this joyous occasion with many more of their family members and friends, so we are happy to provide you with the choice to participate instead in our May graduation ceremony, which is scheduled for Thursday, May 15, 2014 in the Liacouras Center. There will be no ticketing for our May graduation ceremony, and all students participating in CLA’s May ceremony will be able to invite as many guests as they wish.
In order to plan and prepare for both events, we are asking that you RSVP by no later than Wednesday, December 4, 2013. Click here to submit your RSVP.
Please note that only students who respond by December 4, 2013 will be guaranteed tickets for the February 6, 2014 ceremony. Once we know how many students will be participating in the February ceremony, we will work hard to make as many additional tickets available as possible to students who would like to invite more than three guests. The dates for ticket distribution and more information about the ceremony will be emailed in December.
If you have any questions please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
