Graduation Celebration 2020: June 13, 2pm @ the PAC Main Stage

Each year, Huxley College holds a graduation celebration on the afternoon of Spring Commencement. Graduating seniors and master’s candidates attend for one last chance to participate in the Huxley community as a student—and, of course, to hear the Huxley House Band, made up of their favorite faculty and staff members.

Huxley’s Celebration is NOT the Same as Western’s Graduation

The annual Huxley College graduation celebration is unrelated to Western’s official Spring Commencement held on the same day. However, many of Huxley’s spring quarter graduates attend both events. Those students eligible to participate in Western’s commencement will receive official notification from the WWU Registrar.  You can find more information about Western's cap and gown ceremony here.

Photographs for the Graduation Collage & Slide Show

Each year, we also prepare a photo collage of graduates (both attendees and non-attendees) for display at the celebration. Printed posters will be displayed in the Dean’s office after the event, and photos may be used in future Huxley College promotional materials.

Please email digital photographs to by May 12, 2020, to guarantee inclusion in the graduation collage. Be sure to title the photo file with your full name, i.e., ThomasHenryHuxley.jpg. If you miss the May 12 registration deadline, please contact to discuss participation.
