May 14 Commencement Offers Time of Celebration

Commencement represents a beginning and a time of celebration for UNC Charlotte graduates. College of Liberal Arts & Sciences graduate and undergraduate students, along with family, friends and others, will gather for the college’s 2016 Spring Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 14 at 10 a.m. in the Halton Arena, located in the Barnhardt Student Activity Center.
