Bloomington Commencement Feature

School Recognition Events

Almost all graduates are invited to take part in two events: their school’s recognition ceremony and formal Commencement exercises. In many cases, the recognition celebration is on one day and Commencement is on another. Families and friends should take the schedule into account when making travel plans and booking accommodations for IU Bloomington Commencement weekend. This list is tentative and subject to change.
