LatinX Graduation Ceremony

2022 - 2023 LatinX Grad Ceremony

 

About the LatinX Grad Ceremony:

The LatinX Grad Ceremony (LGC) is an intimate celebration that honors the achievements of graduating students who identify as LatinX/Hispanics. The ceremony also honors families, friends, and those who have supported them through their academic journey. The graduation celebration was created by students for students with the intention of bringing awareness to their own stories.

The LatinX Grad Ceremony is not an alternative or replacement of WSU’s commencement. It is an empowering cultural celebration including English and Spanish speakers along with performances representing our cultural roots from the Americas. Weber State University has a strong LatinX community with many of our graduates growing up in the surrounding neighborhoods. This event seeks to continue inspiring future generations of youth that LatinX students do succeed in college. The ceremony was brought to Ogden by the Weber State University’s MEChA chapter, in hopes to continue the push of the LatinX community in higher education.
