|Commencement Information for Linguistics Graduates 2011|
UCLA’s Commencement website (http://www.commencement.ucla.edu/index.cfm) is the official reference webpage for all things about commencement -- information about everything from cap and gown ordering to parking. It even has a handy FAQ (http://www.commencement.ucla.edu/faq.cfm).
There are many commencement events Linguistics graduates might take part in, including the main Letters & Science Commencement Ceremony on Friday, June 10, at 5pm in Drake Stadium (more information, including ordering tickets: http://www.college.ucla.edu/commencement/).
The information below, however, intends to answer questions about events specific to Linguistics graduates, namely the Humanities I Commencement Ceremony and the Linguistics Department Commencement Reception.
Humanities I Commencement Ceremony

Royce Hall Auditorium
At this ceremony, Linguistics graduates -- and graduates from other select departments in the Humanities Division -- will walk across the Royce Hall Auditorium stage to be individually recognized.
