Valedictory Exercises

Friday, May 15, 2015 | 4:00 p.m.| The Lawn

Before the Class of 2015 walks down the Lawn at Final Exercises, they will pay tribute to their fellow classmates and their time spent at the University at the Valedictory Exercises ceremony. This unique ceremony includes the presentation of the Class Gift and University and Class Awards as well as a speech from a keynote speaker, who is chosen by the class. This year's keynote speaker is author, writer, comedian, and musician Ed Helms.

All members of the UVa community, the graduating class, and guests are invited to attend. No tickets are required for the ceremony.

Should the ceremony be moved to the John Paul Jones Arena due to inclement weather, seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Saving seats will not be permitted.

We hope you will join us in celebrating the amazing accomplishments of the Class of 2015!
