Baruch College Commencement Update: Event and Volunteer Information
Baruch's 46th Commencement ceremonies are being held on Wednesday, June 1, 2011 at the Jacob Javits Convention Center North between 11th and 12th Avenues at 39th and 40th Streets (see directions). The first ceremony will be held at 10:30 am and the second at 3:00 pm, both with a mix of undergraduate and graduate candidates. These will be the first Baruch College commencement ceremonies over which President Wallerstein will preside. A luncheon will be served in the Javits Center directly after the morning event.
