From the President
Dear CCU Parent:
On behalf of Coastal Carolina University, I would like to invite you and your family to attend our Spring 2015 Commencement, to be held at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 9, 2015, and to the events preceding it on Friday, May 8. This is the most joyful and momentous occasion of the academic year, and one that will have special meaning as you watch your son or daughter receive a well-earned degree.
On May 8, your student will take his or her place in a long procession of Chanticleers, stretching back through the years to CCU's first four-year degree Commencement in 1975 - and, indeed, back to the day in 1954 when the institution first opened its doors. Commencement serves not only as a tribute to the enduring vibrancy of the Coastal Carolina University family, but also as a powerful symbol of our lifelong worldwide connections as Chanticleers.
This website provides full details about the exciting events planned for May 8 and May 9.
Each graduate is eligible to receive (8) eight tickets to the Spring ceremony; therefore, approximately 9,000 parents, family and friends will be arriving on campus within a short amount of time. In order to secure parking and seating, please plan accordingly. Also, the main ceremony will be broadcast live on the Internet, accessible through this website.
I am proud of the achievements of the Class of 2015, and I look forward to sharing this important and memorable time with you and your family.
David A. DeCenzo
President, Coastal Carolina University
