We can't wait to see you in December for your Graduate Celebration!

Once you and your family arrive on the Trevecca Campus at your designated time, you will be welcomed by Trevecca staff and proceed on a drive through the campus. When you arrive at the Boone Business Building, you will be escorted into the Convocation Center. Graduates will present their name card to the reader, have their name called as they walk across the stage, and pose for a picture with Dr. Dan Boone, Trevecca's president.

GradImages will be with us for this event to capture this special time for each graduate.

Upon your exit, you will also receive an alumni gift.
