522 Receive Degrees at 2013 Event

Xavier’s first commencement on campus since 1983 saw 522 graduates receive their degrees in the University’s new Convocation Center.

During the previous 29 years Xavier had held its commencement in various city venues – most recently the Kiefer Lakefront Arena – following a torrential rainstorm that marred the then traditional outdoor ceremony in 1983.

Until construction of the CC, there was no facility on campus large enough to hold the anticipated crowds.

At the commencement, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin, a 1979 Xavier graduate, delivered a stirring commencement address and was awarded an honorary Doctorate in Science.
