Congratulations to the Class of 2013!
LaGrange College will be celebrating achievements of our students, especially
the Class of 2013, during the months of April and May. We hope that you will be
able to join us as we acknowledge the success of our students. If you are part
of the Class of 2013, you are expected to be present for Honors Day, Baccalaureate,
Commencement Rehearsal, and Commencement. Seniors, if for any reason, you are unable
to attend any of these events, you must submit a petition to be excused to the
Office of the Provost. We encourage all graduate students to participate in our
Commencement will begin at 8:30am on
Saturday, 18 May
. IN THE EVENT OF DRIZZLE OR SOFT RAIN, the ceremony will proceed on time. If
weather conditions appear threatening, Commencement may be delayed until Saturday
afternoon or Sunday afternoon. Graduates and guests are encouraged to take this
possibility into account when making travel plans. The audience is encouraged to
wear a rain poncho instead of using an umbrella; however, umbrellas are permitted.
If you have questions or concerns about the weather and its impact on Commencement,
you may call 706 880.8000 or check our web page. Faculty and students are encouraged
to check their campus voice mail. If you have any questions regarding these academic
events, please contact Lindsey Elkins in the Office of the Provost at
or 706 880.8236. Please continue to refer to the graduation information page on
our website throughout the following weeks for updates and new information.
