    Ruskin, Florida Commencement

    We will celebrate the many achievements of our graduating students at Commencement on August 25, 2018 at 1:00 pm. at Prince of Peace Catholic Church.  The Commencement ceremony is the highlight of the semester for the University community, and we are looking forward to celebrating this wonderful event with you.  Please review carefully the information on this website in preparation for Commencement weekend and retain all information for reference as the event draws closer.

    It is a Gannon tradition that we personalize the Commencement ceremony by announcing the name of each graduate. Although this tradition takes time, the special recognition of each graduate symbolizes Gannon's commitment as a student-centered university. It communicates value and affection for each individual and family. Accordingly, graduates and members of the audience are asked to remain in their seats throughout the ceremony so that they do not interfere with the special moments of others.

    We look forward to celebrating Commencement with you. The entire Gannon community is grateful and proud that you have allowed us to be a part of your lives, and we wish you God's blessing for the future.
