Commencement 2011

Watch video of Vanderbilt University’s class of 2011 Commencement ceremony.

About 2,843 graduates were expected to attend Commencement. Degrees were scheduled to be awarded to 1,734 undergraduate and 1,904 graduate students.

The main ceremony, featuring the annual address to graduates from Chancellor Zeppos, was moved to Memorial Gym due to the weather. After Chancellor Zeppos speaks, there is a brief intermission so graduate and professional school graduates can make their way to separate ceremonies around campus. Undergraduates stay at Memorial Gym to receive their degrees.
