Celebrating Commencement the UB Way

Commencement 2019


The weather was picture perfect. The Seaside Park setting was idyllic. The Class of 2019 was pleased that Commencement was being held on campus under a big top tent for the first time in more than 20 years.

Happiness and pride were in the air as the milestone occasion served to close one chapter and usher in the next with appropriate pomp and circumstance.

The graduate Commencement ceremony followed the undergraduate ceremony with the same gorgeous backdrop and beautiful weather--in fact the best of the season.

President Trombley charged the new graduates with staying in touch with their Alma Mater. Their last year, her first year, would be especially memorable for both.

The Health Sciences Commencement ceremony was held on Sunday, May 12, in the Arnold Bernhard Center.

Those not present with their loved ones and friends tuned to technology and watched the livestream from afar, celebrating student achievement from all corners of the globe.
