Santa Monica College Graduation Ceremony To Be Webcast Live On June 12:

Santa Monica College’s graduation is going global.

SMC’s Commencement Exercises – which will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 12 on Corsair Field – will be webcast live and available on the SMC Alumni webpage.

For the third year in a row, families and friends from all over the world who will not be able to attend graduation will again be able to watch the ceremony and see the graduates receive their diplomas.

About 550 graduates are expected to attend the festive ceremonies, which will also feature California State University, Los Angeles President Dr. James M. Rosser as commencement speaker. In addition, the SMC Foundation’s Distinguished Alumni Award will be presented to Gilda Clift Breland, an attorney who has won numerous awards for her community service and professional accomplishments.

Through the Alumni webpage, graduates will also be able to watch videos and read and post comments. Graduates and SMC friends are encouraged to “like” the Alumni Association’s Facebook fan page and upload their graduation photos. They can also tag their pictures to Flickr or Twitter with #smcgrad12 that will be published on the Association’s website.

After the ceremonies, the Alumni Association is hosting a reception on the Quad, with free hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and two photo booths where pictures will be taken and uploaded on the Alumni website. A compilation video will be available on the website about a week after graduation.

“The SMC community has welcomed students from down the street, across the country and all over the world,” says Dr. Barbara K. Ige, assistant director of campus and alumni relations. “And we will always be here to welcome them home.”
