Dear Poole students and recent graduates,


On behalf of the Poole College community, I am delighted to invite you and your loved ones to the Poole College Commencement Ceremony that will be held on Dec. 14 at 11:30 a.m. at PNC Arena, following the University Commencement.


In addition to celebrating our summer and fall 2021 graduates, we are extending this invitation to all Poole 2020 and 2021 graduates who didn’t have an in-person commencement experience due to the pandemic.
