UND graduation set for this weekend

Get ready to flip your tassel and toss your mortarboard—UND is heading for another general spring commencement.

Ceremonies for undergraduates and their graduate counterparts are scheduled for this Saturday at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks. Events begin at 9 a.m. for the doctoral and master's degree ceremony, during which the university will confer a degree to its first-ever Ph.D. in petroleum engineering. Undergraduates will walk across the stage at 1:30 p.m.

On Sunday, many of the state's newest crop of doctors will switch out their white coats for green robes during the M.D. class commencement for the UND School of Medicine and Health.

That ceremony begins at 2:30 p.m. at the Chester Fritz Auditorium.

Last weekend, graduates of the UND School of Law had their own commencement at the Fritz, sending off about 85 new attorneys.

UND recommended attendees check the university website before the event to see if any times have changed..
