December 2013 Recognition of Graduates

See highlights from the Recognition of December Graduates in the video clip below. The University of Virginia's College at Wise wishes all of our graduates the best as they embark on new endeavors.

Convocation 2013







Students will be joined by family and friends and the College community when Chancellor Donna P. Henry confers degrees on Dec. 6 at 1 p.m. in the David J. Prior Convocation Center. A reception will follow.

The tradition began in December 1993 when a student mentioned to Chancellor L. Jay Lemons that, while she planned to return for Commencement in May, it would be nice to be recognized in December. In response, Chancellor Lemons held a ceremony in the Chapel of All Faiths that was followed by a reception at the chancellor’s residence.

Later, at the request of several alumni, Chancellor David J. Prior conferred degrees in December 2010 and those students received their diplomas soon after.

As the number of graduates grew, the ceremony was moved to Greear Gymnasium and is now held in the David J. Prior Convocation Center.
