While the spring CU commencement ceremony is much larger and traditionally held at scenic Folsom Field, there are a few unorthodox details mixed into a winter CU graduation that set it apart from spring commencement, including garland and poinsettias instead of spring bouquets, and graduates might even be able to pick their parents out of the smaller crowd to get in a quick wave.
The University of Colorado intends to increase its six-year graduation rate from 68 percent to an all-time high of 71 percent over the next decade, according to its latest performance contract with the state's higher education department.
Commencement is an exciting time for all grads. A few stories have popped out at us over the last few years, including international students at commencement, a CU graduate headed to Nepal to fight malnutrition and getting into Boulder for graduation is not easy, sometimes even because of a blizzard.
CU graduation: ALMOST THERE!
