Averett University Graduation Information
Commencement ceremonies are a time for family and friends to celebrate the achievements of their student(s). We look forward to welcoming you to campus for this very special event. Averett holds two commencements a year – winter and spring. Commencement exercises begin at 10:00 a.m. and are held at the North Campus in our E. Stuart James Grant Convocation and Athletic Center (707 Mt. Cross Rd.). Each student has his or her name read and gets a diploma from the University President, and graduate students receive a ceremonial hood.

Proudly now we sing,
Faithful to thy name forever,
Let our praises ring.
O, dear Averett, we are thankful
As we sing to thee,
For honor, friendship and real wisdom
Thou dost hold the key.
Memories dear we’ll hold
We’ll remember now and ever
Our dear blue and gold.
