Join us as we recognize the achievements of political science students from the class of 2024 receiving their BA, MA, and PhD degrees. The department will grant awards, recognize students graduating with honors, and host a social reception with light snacks. Family and friends are welcome but students must register and obtain tickets in advance. Instructions on how to register and reserve tickets are below.

Our convocation and reception event will be on Thursday, May 16th (time TBD) in the Bauman Center Ballroom. This event is for our department to recognize the hard work of our students, celebrate their outstanding achievements, and spend time visiting with classmates and faculty. This event is not to be missed!
