May 17th, 2014 will mark the 117th graduation ceremony held at the University of Montana. Friends and family will converge on Missoula to help celebrate this momentous achievement of the students in their lives.

Students come to the University of Montana from all around the world to achieve a goal. That goal is to attend a University that upholds its traditions, provides a top notch education, and does so in a setting surrounded by some of the best scenery in the world.

UM Graduation on the OvalFrom the moment you step onto The University of Montana campus and take in the scene, you notice just how picturesque this campus is. Nestled at the foot of Mount Sentinel, Main Hall rises up from the Oval to preside over the campus, to announce proudly to a global student body and staff, “We are Montana.”

At the close of the ceremony students will receive their diplomas and scatter to the four winds, taking with them the memories that have been made while attending UM — and the knowledge that they now possess to propel them toward their futures. Memories of cramming for finals, cheering for the Griz, and hiking to the “M.” And the many friends made who will be friends for a lifetime.

UM_Grads 450Walking in the footsteps of these graduates will be more graduates next year — and the year after that. Each graduation class  signifies the end of one chapter in their lives and the beginning of another.  New chapters that will be filled with a multitude of opportunities as our graduates step proudly out into the world.
