Apr 09, 2013 No Comments by

SAN RAFAEL, Calif. — Like all brick and mortar universities, commencement events bring the academic year to a crescendo and close.  At Dominican University of California graduation is the largest and most important event of the year requiring the efforts of staff, faculty and a small army of volunteers. Commencement planners are now seeking student volunteers to help make festivities successful and assist with a variety of important  activities.

The following is a schedule of graduation events that volunteers are needed for.

  • Thurs. May 16: Rehearsal at 8 a.m.
  • Fri. May 17: Baccalaureate Mass at 3 p.m.
  • Sat. May 18: Commencement Ceremony (duties start at 8 a.m., ceremony starts at 10 a.m. on the Forest Meadows Field)

Volunteers who live on-campus are allowed to stay in the dorms through commencement weekend, and won’t have to move out until Sun. May 19. Signing up to volunteer is easy and can now be done online.  Commencement Volunteer Form
