Graduate Receptions

Celebrate Your Graduation from Michigan State University

Spartan Statue

The MSU Alumni Office, along with the Division of Student Affairs and Services, invites graduating students to a reception at Cowles House prior to each Commencement.

The Graduate Reception provides us the occasion to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and welcome them as soon-to-be alumni of Michigan State University. Students will have the opportunity to network with peers and university staff, have a professional photo taken with President Stanley, take that ever elusive photo with Sparty and enjoy complimentary food and beverages.

The invitation extends to only to students graduating in spring and summer semesters 2020 and cannot be transferred to friends or family. The attire for this event is business casual.

Invitations will be emailed in early March to all spring and summer semester graduates who have applied for graduation and registration will open at that time.



For more information: If you have questions about the Graduate Receptions, please contact Elizabeth Wheeler via email or by calling (517) 884-2106.
