A joyous, vibrant celebration, Commencement offers parents and families the opportunity to mark this significant milestone with new graduates. Graduating students typically take the opportunity to transform their caps and gowns in idiosyncratic ways – by painting, shredding, reimagining and embellishing them to make a more personal artistic statement or simply to have fun with this colorful RISD tradition.
RISD’s 2015 Commencement ceremony takes place on Saturday, May 30 at the Rhode Island Convention Center in downtown Providence.
For updates about the weekend, visit the 2015 Commencement site.
Watch for more information on the 2015 event as the academic year gets underway.
