Flood changes UI Winter Commencement

Posted:

Iowa City (KWWL) - The flooding of Hancher Auditorium is changing the graduation tradition at the University of Iowa.

For the first time in decades, the UI is combining its Undergraduate Winter Commencement Ceremony.

Winter Graduation is planned for Saturday, December 20th at Carver Hawkeye Arena.

The ceremonies, traditionally held at Hancher Auditorium, were moved because of this year's record flooding.

The UI expects to confer about 1,600 degrees during the winter commencement exercises.
