Graduation is a high point in the experience of Indiana Wesleyan University students, their families, and their friends. People will gather from far and wide to celebrate as thousands of IWU graduates receive their diplomas. Commencement is a time to recognize the academic achievement and commitment of each student who is completing his or her college journey. The beautiful Chapel-Auditorium on the residential campus in Marion, Indiana, provides the setting for IWU graduation. A Live webcast of commencement is available for those unable to attend the ceremonies in person.
