2017 Commencement Celebrates Minneapolis College Students!

Graduation Ceremony 2017

More than a hundred Minneapolis College faculty and staff attended the 2017 Commencement Ceremony at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Approximately 75 Deans and faculty members comprised an honor guard.

Family and friends of the graduates cheered, applauded and even shed tears as the newest Minneapolis College alumni walked across the stage to receive commendation and a handshake from Minnesota State Chancellor Steven Rosenstone and Minneapolis College President Sharon Pierce as well as several Minneapolis College executives, outgoing Student Senate President Joe Amrhein and student speaker Jewlene Bellamy.

The processional and recessional were provided by the Minneapolis College Chamber and Jazz Ensemble under the direction of Yolanda Y. Williams, Instructor of Music. Dr. Elizabeth Pauly and the Minneapolis College Choir provided a special musical presentation.

Plan now to attend next year's Commencement on May 14, 2018.
