Graduation Celebration moves to College Park Center

The threat of inclement weather has forced Graduation Celebration indoors tonight, Friday, May 11. The event will take place at 7:30 p.m. in College Park Center, 601 S. Pecan St.

Graduates and their families and friends as well as community members, faculty, staff, and fellow students are invited to join in the festivities, which will include music by the UT Arlington Jazz Orchestra and free food. The fireworks show planned for the Levitt Pavilion venue has been canceled.

Award-winning actor and education advocate James Franco will deliver the keynote address. President James D. Spaniolo and Melissa Sepulveda Tran, a nursing master’s degree candidate, also will provide remarks.

The event is free, and no tickets are required. Free parking is available in all campus lots and the parking garage north of College Park Center at UTA Boulevard between Pecan and Center streets.
