Celebrating the Class of 2023!
We are excited to celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2023 at 1 p.m., Saturday, April 29, 2023, on the Quad in front of Kresge Gymnasium.
In the case of rain, the start time may be adjusted to keep the ceremony outdoors and open to the public. In the case of severe weather, the ceremony will be moved to Goodrich Chapel — this decision will be announced via email and on the Albion College website. If the ceremony takes place indoors, tickets will be required. Students will receive two tickets prior to the event for distribution to friends and family. Overflow simulcast locations will be offered in Upper Baldwin Hall and Norris 101.
Caps and gowns
Caps and gowns will be available for purchase in the Albion College Bookstore. A grad fair will take place Feb. 15 for students walking at Commencement to order caps, gowns and commemorative items.

We will continue to work in partnership with the Calhoun County Public Health Department (CCPHD) to create a safe Commencement experience. Albion College ended its indoor mask mandate March 28, 2022, in all areas. More information can be found on our Together Safely page.
Senior Class Gift
The Senior Class Gift is a long-standing Albion College tradition that began in the late-1800s. The members of the graduating class choose a project that exemplifies their experiences as students and/or through which they want to have an impact on the College.
The Class of 2023 has chosen a two-part Senior Class Gift. Class members are encouraged to submit pieces for a mural that will encompass their individual and collective student experiences.
The 2023 Senior Class Gift will also collect monetary and clothing donations for the Career Closet administered by the Career and Internship Center. This resource provides professional clothing for students needing options for internships, interviews or new jobs.
