The Human Physiology Department commencement ceremony will be on Monday, June 19th at 12:30 pm. The location is the east lawn behind the Knight Law School rain or shine, which is located on the corner of Agate and 15th Streets. Enter the site from 15th street. No tickets are required for the HPHY ceremony and no limit on guests. It will last about 1-1/2 hours. Graduates should arrive for check-in by noon, dressed in graduation cap and gown.
