Germanna’s first Fall Commencement to be held tonight at at Fredericksburg Expo Center

Germanna Community College will host its first Fall Commencement tonight at 7 at the Fredericksburg Expo Center. The Expo Center, which seats 2,500, is the largest indoor venue in the area, and the college, which is approaching a total annual enrollment of 15,000, has been seeing overflow crowds at its traditional May ceremony. It is no longer able to accomodate all the friends and relatives of graduates who would like to attend in one event. The college did not want to restrict the number of family members and friends who could attend. So students who completed work for their degrees and certifications in the summer and fall will walk tonight.

Germanna will continue to host a May Commencement for those who complete requirements in the Spring.

All who would like to attend tonight are welcome. No ticket is necessary.
