WCSU announces dates, speakers for commencement

Western Connecticut State University has announced their commencement speakers, dates and locations.  The May 2015 undergraduate commencement ceremony will feature remarks by former Connecticut Governor Jodi Rell. 

 

Senator Chris Murphy will deliver the graduate commencement address on Friday May 8th.  That ceremony will be held at 7pm in the O’Neill Center on the university’s Westside campus in Danbury. 

 

The undergraduate ceremony will be held on Sunday May 10th at 10:30am, and for the first time it will be off campus.  University spokesman Paul Steinmetz says the ceremony will be at Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport. Some of the factors in the decision include the traffic jams and delays for families making it to the ceremony, the stadium is crowded and it's outside. 

 

Every year there's stress over if the weather will cooperate on the day of the ceremony. 

 

Central, Souther and Eastern Connecticut State Universities all hold their undergraduate commencement ceremonies at either the XL Center in Hartford or at Webster Arena.  Steinmetz says Webster is the closest indoor facility big enough to hold the 5,000 to 6,000 people who will attend the ceremony.
