Soon-to-be graduates, the moment you’ve waited for is practically here. Our 2018 graduation ceremony will be held Thursday, May 17 at 6 p.m. at JQH Arena on the Missouri State University Campus.
Whether you’re celebrating your own graduation this year, or that of a fellow student, friend or family member, share your excitement on social media with the hashtag, #OTCgrad. We’ll also have a graduation Snapchat filter at the event, so be on the lookout for that as well.
If you are planning to walk in this year’s procession, please report to the main floor of Hammons Student Center no later than 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 17. Leave your personal belongings with friends or family members before entering the center, as you will not be returning to that facility.
Do you have friends or family unable to attend the ceremony? No worries. We will stream the entire event live online and via Facebook. Do you have more burning questions about commencement this year? See our graduation FAQ for need-to-know info.
Let’s take a closer look at the Class of 2018. We asked some of our graduates to fill out a survey, and this is what they had to say.
