Ramapo College recently announced the date of the 2016 Commencement Ceremony to be Friday, May 13.

“The idea of graduating is really exciting. My time at Ramapo has been amazing, and I’m excited to see what lies ahead,” Warren Dolan, a senior, said.

Before last year’s ceremony, commencement was typically held at the Izod Center in Rutherford, New Jersey, but when the facility was closed last winter, the College was left to find a new venue.

“Due to the recent news about the imminent closing of the Izod Center, Ramapo College is working diligently on alternate plans,” the College’s website noted last year as reported in a prior article.

Deciding to hold the 2015 ceremony in the Prudential Center in Newark for the first time proved to be a success.

This year’s ceremony will be held at the Prudential Center for the second year. According to Ramapo’s announcement, the ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. with doors opening at 7:30 a.m.
