Major Academic Events


To commence is "to begin," or "to start." At the end of their college journey, our students begin a new chapter of their lives, applying the knowledge and values they've learned during their years at Emmanuel—how to be a leader, how to be an ethical decision maker, how to succeed in a diverse and global society.

Commencement is one of the most exciting times of the academic year, if not of a student's entire college journey. The College's ceremony celebrates the achievements of Emmanuel students and honors the accomplishments of distinguished speakers and guests.
