Winter Lavender Graduation

Are you graduating this December? We want to celebrate you!

We are excited to host Winter Lavender Graduation as part of our Pride Family Dinner on Tuesday, December 6th at 5:00 PM in Lory Student Center Ballroom D.

What is Lav Grad?

Lavender Graduation celebrates the accomplishments and achievements of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and ally undergraduate and graduate students. Colleges and universities across the United States participate in celebrations like this for the last two decades. We welcome all graduates to be a part of our ceremony, regardless of their involvement in the Pride Resource Center! While our typical ceremony is at the end of April, we're excited to celebrate the group of LGBTQ+ students graduating this December as part of our Pride Family Dinner.

What is the Pride Family Dinner?

Pride invites our extended family (students, families, faculty & staff) to join us for an end of semester celebration with food & cozy activities. At the end of the night, we will celebrate our December graduates!
