Spring Undergraduate & Graduate Convocation
The College of Design’s spring undergraduate and graduate convocation is a separate event from the official Iowa State University commencement ceremony. This event includes bachelor’s and master’s students only from the College of Design and allows students and their guests a more individualized celebration of their achievement.
Candidates for degrees in architecture, community and regional planning, industrial design, landscape architecture, sustainable environments and urban design will be recognized in a ceremony at 8:30 a.m. in the Lyle E. Lightfoot Forum (atrium). Candidates for degrees in art and design, interdisciplinary design, graphic design, integrated studio arts, integrated visual arts and interior design will be recognized in a second ceremony at 11 a.m. All candidates and guests are invited to attend a reception between the ceremonies at 10 a.m. in the King Pavilion. The reception area will be open beginning at 7 a.m. and remain open for visitors to use through the end of the end of the second ceremony.
