Alumni Commencement Programs

Welcoming New Alumni & Honoring Our Legacy

The Alumni Association hosts a variety of events leading up to and including commencement. We work to engage not only the senior class, but also the 50th reunion class into our commencement program that helps strengthen the bond to USF.  This is a special milestone and we are excited to be a part of it.

Senior Celebration

Typically hosted in April (and coordinated with student input), it includes food and drinks, a photo booth, and a fun evening with the seniors. For more information about this year’s festivities, please contact the Alumni & Family Relations Office at 877-811-ALUM, or view event details here.

“Selfie” Campaign

Be sure to follow us at Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

50th Reunion Class – Class of 1971

group of smiling alumniDue to preventative measures being taken by the university in light the COVID-19 outbreak, the alumni commencement tradition for the 50th reunion class—the Class of 1971—has been canceled. However, the University of St. Francis and the Alumni & Family Relations Office would like to take this opportunity to thank this very special group of alumni for their long-time school spirit, involvement and support! We look forward to honoring you at Homecoming & Reunion on October 2! Questions can be directed to the Alumni & Family Relations Office at
