On May 17th and 18th CU Denver's first-ever Cross the Quad celebration will be held for pre-registered graduates. Instead of a traditional, seated ceremony, graduates will line up around the Quad at an assigned time and cross the stage in front of the historic Tivoli building to symbolize the completion of their studies at CU Denver. Graduate names will be announced, diploma covers will be presented, and professional photographers will be there to capture the moment.  In addition, up to two guests can accompany their grad to the event. Guests will travel around the Quad with their grad in a pod and will cross in front of the stage while their grad receives their diploma cover on stage.

Volunteers are needed on multiple days, including setup on Sunday, 5/16. The roles for this event will be entirely different from previous commencement activities. A number of safety protocols will be in place, including requiring all present to wear masks and limiting capacity to only 150 graduates per hour.  Sign-up as soon as possible.
