The College of Charleston’s 2017 Spring Commencement will be one to remember, not only for the grads who got their diplomas but also for the College community as a whole.
After perfect weather for the first ceremony on Friday, May 12, 2017, rain forced the relocation of the two Saturday ceremonies to TD Arena, marking the first indoor spring commencement since 1968. Despite the change of venue, Cougar spirits remained high as grads traded crossing the Cistern for an indoor stage.
Below are videos of all three of this year’s Spring Commencement exercises.
