Rainbow Graduation and Induction into the UC San Diego LGBT Alumni 2019!

June 8th, 2019 from 10am-12pm at Great Hall

If you are a student who is graduating and has not yet registered, please simply join us at the event and check in with the staff to let them know you would like to walk. 

What Rainbow Graduation is:

  • Something you would invite your family/close friends/those most important to you
  • An opportunity to honor graduating undergraduate and graduate students, volunteers and academics
  • A formal induction into the ranks of UC San Diego LGBT Alumni
  • Although many people do get dressed up for the event, it tends to be a queer little get together, with all the trappings of our community, so be yourself
  • Something that has GREAT food
  • Something that over 150 folks usually attend, sometimes more
  • Something you'd ask a favorite professor/those who have affected you at UC San Diego to attend
  • The last formal program of the year from the LGBT Resource Center
  • Lots of fun
  • The event where participating undergraduates get a Rainbow Tassel  and grad students get a Rainbow Cord (Woo Hoo!)

 What Rainbow Graduation is not:

  • An actual graduation (it is a ceremony and celebration, but folks don't get a diploma or anything, just a nifty certificate)
  • A substitute for attending UC San Diego's undergraduate college, graduate school or professional school graduations
  • Something you would want to miss
