The Class Day ceremony celebrates the accomplishments of graduating students from Columbia College.

Please note that gates will open approximately 1 hour before each ceremony begins; it is best to confirm specific arrival times with the individual school.

Students' names are read as they process across the stage, and students are photographed and receive a class pin. Student life, academic, and alumni awards and prizes are conferred.
