Commencement Volunteers Needed

UHD-CommencementIt's the time of year when the University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) community is asked to help with the commencement ceremony.

The spring 2016 ceremony will be held at Minute Maid Park, home of the Houston Astros, on Sunday, May 15, 2016. Gates open for students and guests at 8:30 a.m. The procession will begin at 10:15 a.m., and the ceremony at 11 a.m.

Volunteers are needed to welcome graduates' families and friends to the venue, distribute programs, direct guests to seats, help students check in, and assist with special accommodations and other needs that may arise.

Helping out with the commencement ceremony is a fun and meaningful activity. Sign up and become part of one of the most important UHD events of the year.
