On June 9, 2018, the University of Washington will honor the graduating class of 2018 at the University’s 143rd Annual Commencement Exercises. Over 5,500 graduates will take the field at the magnificent Husky Stadium to the cheers and applause of 40,000 family members and friends.
All graduates will walk across the 4,000 square foot purple and gold commencement stage, adorned with life-sized replicas of the University columns, and have their photographs taken as they receive their diploma mementos (a purple leather diploma cover bearing the official seal of the University of Washington).
It will be a once-in-a-lifetime event in the lives of graduates and parents alike – an experience not to be missed.
Featuring commencement speaker, Dr. Benjamin Danielson, a 1992 graduate of the UW School of Medicine, a Children’s Hospital pediatrician and director of the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic.
