54th annual commencement ceremony to be held May 4

April 15, 2012 | Evangel University News


The 54th annual commencement ceremony will take place Friday, May 4, 2012, at James River Assembly of God in Ozark, Missouri.

For everyone at Evangel, it’s the culmination of all we have worked for. Watching more than 450 students achieve the pinnacle of their college careers – leaving Evangel with a diploma that represents the integration of faith, learning and life. We watch with mixed emotions, sad to say goodbye to students we have grown to love, but so proud knowing they are ready to go out and be world changers.

But graduation really isn’t about us. It’s about you – the students and families who have worked and sacrificed to reach this day. This is your moment. Congratulations from all of us at Evangel!

Here is everything you need to know to make your graduation weekend a success:
