The 2017 Fels Graduation Ceremony will take place on Sunday, May 14th at 1:30pm.

Fels is proud to announce that our spring commencement speaker will be Mayor of South Bend, IN and candidate for D.N.C. Chairman Pete Buttigieg! You can read about Mayor Buttigieg in the New York Times here.

A Rhodes Scholar, Buttigieg studied Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Oxford and holds a bachelor's degree in History and Literature from Harvard. Prior to becoming mayor, Buttigieg worked for McKinsey & Company, a top consulting firm, where he worked in economic development, energy, retail, and logistics.

The ceremony will be held in the beautiful St. Mary's church at Hamilton Village on Penn's campus located about a minute's walk away from Fox-Fels Hall. 

Due to limited seating, this event is not open to the general public, and seats for guests of graduating students will be provided directly to graduates. Please contact Cameron Miller with any questions.
