Commencement Volunteers

Commencement at the Stroh Center

Commencement is a special time for our University community. It is a time for our graduates to celebrate both an ending and a beginning, as they bring to a close their academic program of study and start the next chapter of their lives. This momentous occasion is also an opportunity for faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of Bowling Green State University to share in our graduates' rite of passage.

You are invited be a part of one of the most important days in the lives of the next class of BGSU alumni. Serving as a commencement volunteer is a great way to show your support for our graduates and to help make their celebration memorable.
