Graduation Week Set to Start with a Bang!

21 November 2019

Excitement is building for a brand new event to kick off 2019 December graduations week - Grand Graduation!

The Grand Graduation will be a celebratory event under the beautiful trees on University Avenue. If you're a graduating student, you can invite your family and friends to the Grand Graduation and enjoy a free picnic after the ceremony.

The Grand Graduation will be held at 10.30 am on Tuesday, 10 December.

It will mark the beginning of 2019 December graduations week. The more formal college graduation ceremonies will still be held throughout the week.

ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt says the Grand Graduation will bring a welcome sense of celebration to December graduations week.

"Your conferring of degree ceremony is an important formality, it's where you cross the stage and receive your degree; but the Grand Graduation is where you come to celebrate with all of your friends, family, teachers and the wider ANU community together in one place."
