From the President
Dear CCU Parent:
On behalf of Coastal Carolina University, I would like to invite you and your family to attend our Fall 2013 Commencement, to be held at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 14, 2013, and to the events preceding it on Friday, December 13. This is the most joyful and momentous occasion of the academic year, and one that will have special meaning as you watch your son or daughter receive a well-earned degree.
On December 14, your student will take his or her place in a long procession of Chanticleers, stretching back through the years to CCU's first four-year degree Commencement in 1975 - and, indeed, back to the day in 1954 when the institution first opened its doors. Commencement serves not only as a tribute to the enduring vibrancy of the Coastal Carolina University family, but also as a powerful symbol of our lifelong worldwide connections as Chanticleers.
This website provides full details about the exciting events planned for December 13 and December 14. The main ceremony will be broadcast live on the Internet, accessible through this website.
Each graduate is eligible to receive five (5) tickets to the Fall ceremony; therefore, approximately 2,500 parents, family and friends will be arriving on campus within a short amount of time. In order to secure parking and seating, please plan accordingly.
I am proud of the achievements of the Class of 2013, and I look forward to sharing this important and memorable time with you and your family.
David A. DeCenzo
