Colorado Mesa University is getting ready for its spring graduation commencement on Saturday.
Officials announced a modified format that will keep intact the practice of reading graduate names during commencement while improving the experience for attendees.
The university’s new format includes a morning ceremony that begins at 8:30 a.m. and an evening ceremony that begins at 4 p.m.
The commencement will take place at Stocker Stadium in Grand Junction.
For those unable to attend, the ceremony will be live streamed. A link can be at Colorado Mesa University’s website: https://www.coloradomesa.edu/commencement/may/index.html
