Seawolves SPEAK!: "What is your favorite memory of Sonoma State University?”

April 30, 2019 Alex Funchess, Staff Writer

With the spring semester coming to a close, many Sonoma State Univeristy students are preparing for their future as college graduates. 

With just three weeks left until graduation weekend, students look forward to their commencement, and many reflect upon their journey at Sonoma State. 

Regardless of their plans for after college, graduation weekend is a milestone for all students. Sonoma State graduates have left an impact on campus and will leave several memories on campus. Many future graduates hold fond and warm memories of their time at Sonoma State University. Some will remember the friends they’ve made, for others it’s the clubs they’ve joined or the life changing classes they’ve taken.

On Saturday, May 18, ceremonies begin at 9 a.m. First will be held for the School of Business and Economics, then the School of Science and Technology at 1 p.m., and finally the School of Arts and Humanities at 5 p.m. 

Ceremonies continue Sunday, May 19 as students from the School of Social Sciences and Education will cross the stage at the Green Music Center. Tickets have been distributed to graduates, however, attendees can find lots of outdoor seating on the Weill Hall lawn.
