Nearly 800 students will be honored at the College of Liberal Arts’ 2013 spring commencement ceremony at 4 p.m. Sunday at the College Park Center.
Seven doctoral candidates, 107 master’s degree candidates and 667 undergraduates are set to complete their degree requirements and walk across the stage to receive their University of Texas at Arlington diplomas. Thousands of family, friends and well-wishers are expected to be on-hand.
Dallas attorney Andy Sommerman (‘83) is the commencement speaker. The ceremony will feature Dr. Beth Wright, Dean of Liberal Arts; COLA faculty; and a student performance group from the Department of Music.
The commencement festivities kick of with Graduation Celebration, a free community festival featuring fireworks and remarks by actor, producer, and political activist Kal Penn, at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Levitt Pavilion in downtown Arlington.
