Congratulations to the Class of 2013!

Congratulations to the Class of 2013! During the last four years at UChicago, you've traveled around the world with Study Abroad, walked a runway in Union Station, did yoga at the Point during Kangeiko, created plays in 24 hours,  and even brought a tiger to the Midway during Scav Hunt.

On Saturday, June 15, the University of Chicago hosts its 515th Convocation. All candidates will gather in the Main Quad at 9:00 a.m. for the University's Convocation ceremony and the conferring of degrees. At 1:00 p.m. the College will hold its diploma ceremony in the Main Quad. For more on the schedule of events, visit the College Convocation site

We've asked two graduates to live-tweet the Convocation ceremony. Follow @UChicagoCollege for a play-by-play coverage of the ceremony. Share your own thoughts, jokes, pictures and reflections on Twitter and Instagram with the hasthag #UChiGrad13
