Class of 2021 Celebration

Department of History Virtual Graduation and Awards Ceremony

Graduates throwing hats in the air.

Please join the Department of History for a special virtual ceremony to celebrate all our students have accomplished during their time here at the University at Buffalo. This smaller ceremony precedes the big University Commencement the following day, and allows for each of our graduates, both undergraduates and Master's students, to be recognized individually for their achievements. The ceremony will include a special speaker and the presentation of awards. All attending graduates will recieve a certificate after we say a few words about each individual student.

We hope you will be present to applaud each other’s accomplishments and give your professors the chance to wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors. 

Whether or not you plan to attend the ceremony, please fill out and return the History Graduation Survey and individual slide for the ceremony. The completed survey will supply us with important information required by the university and help us to better serve the needs of our current and future students. Please complete both required pieces of information no later than May 7, 2021

For questions contact Shayna Devlin, Communications Coordinator,
