The number of graduation participants per college and current health and safety guidance will determine the format and number of total ceremonies needed to provide a safe and memorable event for all graduates and guests. Details will be posted on our website, ua.edu/commencement, and shared directly with graduates via email once they are finalized. Please monitor the commencement website as well as your crimson email for updates.
This weekend, the dream of becoming a #BamaGrad came true for 5,000+ UA students - including 87-year-old Pat Cassity. After first enrolling in 1947, seven decades later, Pat is now part of the #Bama alumni family.
The phrase “good things come to those who wait,” is fitting for Pat Cassity’s walk across the stage at Friday afternoon’s commencement ceremony at The University of Alabama.
Unlike her fellow graduates, the moment Cassity receives her diploma will be the culmination of a journey that started when she enrolled at UA in the summer of 1947.
Whether continuing with higher education or starting a career, six graduates will never forget their time at UA. Seniors Beau DeVaul, Vickie Fassl, Gene Fulmer, Tori Leonard, Rachel Paulsen and Richie Petitbon share the transformative influence UA has had and will continue to have on them for the rest of their lives.
