Shortest. Ceremony. Ever.

While a majority of seniors will be graduating next spring, 2394 University Park students who decided that the 4-year plan wasn’t for them will be taking part in the Fall 2009 Commencement Ceremony this Saturday. Joining them will be 691 graduate students and 1431 students at branch campuses.

At 9 a.m. graduates in the College of Agricultural Sciences, Smeal College of Business, College of Earth and Mineral Sciences, College of Engineering and the College of Information Sciences and Technology will have their ceremony.

At 12:30 p.m. associate degree recipients and grads from The College of Arts and Architecture, College of Communications, College of Education, College of Health and Human Development, College of Liberal Arts, the School of Nursing and Eberly College of Science will have theirs.

In addition to Saturday’s festivities, the Schreyer Honors College will be holding a medal ceremony for its 43 graduating seniors at 5 p.m. Friday at The Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel.

Update 6:00 pm: An earlier version of this post had an incorrect breakdown of which ceremonies each college’s graduates would attend. Needless to say, writing about graduation ceremonies in the middle of a marathon cram session might not have been the best idea. On 33 hours of sleep, accuracy is a fickle friend.
