Commencement Dates Moved For 2004 And 2005
Clarkson University has modified its academic calendar for the years 2003-04 and 2004-05. The start and end dates for both semesters, the dates for commencement, and other key dates have been changed.
Commencement in 2004 will take place on Sunday, May 9, and commencement in 2005 will take place on Sunday, May 8.
The complete academic calendar for the next four years can be found on Clarkson’s Web site at http://www.clarkson.edu/sas/academic_calendar.
The change in the calendar was initiated after the University became aware that St. Lawrence University and Clarkson had scheduled commencement exercises for the same days in 2004 and 2005. The calendar change helps the community by having these major events scheduled on different weekends, and assists students’ families by making it easier to find lodging and access to restaurants during the commencement weekend.
