Winter Commencement

Sunday, Dec. 18, 2022
1 p.m.
Shove Memorial Chapel (Colorado College Campus)

Honoring our mid-year graduates

Winter Commencement is an opportunity to recognize and celebrate those students who complete their undergraduate studies prior to the May Commencement ceremony. This year’s event took place in person in Shove Memorial Chapel, and the ceremony included remarks from President L. Song Richardson and a Commencement address from Nadia Guessous, Associate Professor and Associate Director Feminist and Gender Studies.

President Richardson also led the presentation of graduates and the awarding of diplomas. 

This event may be especially meaningful for those students who are unable to participate in May Commencement activities, however, participation in Winter Commencement does not exclude students from participating in the May Commencement ceremony.


A professional photographer from Grad Images was present in Shove Chapel to take individual photos of graduates in cap and gown on Dec. 18, prior to the ceremony. Photos will be available for purchase approximately 2 weeks after the event at
