After two unusual years of graduation celebrations, Final Exercises will return in May to its proper venue: The Lawn.
Finals Weekend 2022 begins on Friday, May 20, with Valedictory Exercises at John Paul Jones Arena beginning at 3 p.m.
The 193rd Final Exercises will be held on Saturday, May 21, for graduates of the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, with the Academic Procession at 10 a.m. Ceremonies for all other schools will begin at 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 22.
Two years ago, all ceremonies were virtual, due to the still-new COVID-19 pandemic. In 2021, events were held in Scott Stadium, with members of both the classes of 2020 and 2021 having an opportunity to celebrate the conferral of degrees in person.
On this page, meet some of the distinguished members of UVA’s Class of 2022. Additional stories leading up to Finals Weekend, including the announcement of speakers and full coverage of all of the celebrations, will be found here in the coming weeks as well.
