Clarkson University Moves Commencements to Saturday

Clarkson University has moved this spring’s commencement ceremony and all future spring commencements to Saturday, rather than Sunday.

This year’s commencement will be held on Saturday, May 8, at 3 p.m. in the Cheel Arena.

The change was initiated based on input from students, faculty, and staff.
