UL Lafayette fall graduation will be different this semester due to the Ragin' Cajuns Bowl Game Saturday, Dec. 17. The university will forgo the general assembly, which is usually at 9:00 a.m. and involves all graduates and a keynote speaker.
Instead of commencement exercises spread throughout the day, all eight colleges will hold graduation ceremonies at 9:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. "All in the morning so students can go to the game," UL Lafayette spokesperson Christine Payton said. A list of colleges and graduation times is below.
