UC hosts summer graduation, first time in 30 years

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The month of August will mean more than back-to-school preparation, classes, and football for the University of Cincinnati this year.

The university will hold an end-of-summer commencement ceremony that has not been seen more than three decades.

Approximately 2,130 students will graduate on Saturday, August 10 in a summer commencement ceremony. The practice was phased out after it was in place from the early 1960s to 1979.

UC experienced an increase of enrollment and retention with students in the last few years, prompting a change in the graduation schedule to provide students with a more timely graduation. The school expects to host commencement ceremonies at the end of the spring, summer, and fall terms in the future.

Santa J. Ono, president of UC, will lead the event which will include 2,138 degrees earned for undergraduate and graduate students (some students will earn more than one degree).

The graduation will be held at 9:00 a.m. in the Fifth Third Arena. Doors for the event open at 7:30 a.m. and seating is available on a first come, first seated basis.
