Lee’s summer commencement is one of three graduation ceremonies held each year at the university. One hundred sixty-four students will receive degrees in the Saturday morning ceremony.

Prior to the Saturday commencement, a commissioning ceremony will be held Friday, July 26, at 6:30 p.m., also in the Conn Center. The commissioning service is a special occasion for students and their families to reflect on student experiences at the university.

During the event, there are five student speakers who share brief stories about their time at Lee. Each graduate is presented a personalized Bible in a traditional walk across the Conn Center stage.
