Commencement Weekend Celebrations

Lavender Graduates, First Generation Graduates Celebration, and Graduates of Color Celebrations

During Commencement Weekend, the University hosts three events held in high esteem by and of great importance to the campus community: the Graduates of Color Celebration, First Generation Graduates Recognition, and Lavender Graduates Celebration. These events represent the university’s commitment to recognizing the unique challenges and triumphs that LGBTQ+ students; first-generation college students; and, students of color navigate in society and on campus, acknowledging their great achievements as they graduate from Puget Sound.
