Saturday May 15, 2010, is the University of Montana Commencement. The Ceremony will take place at 10am outside The Oval, rain or shine. Ceremonies for Professional Schools will be at 11:30am at various locations around the campus.
We always enjoy hosting friends and family of graduates at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast during UMT Commencement weekend.
Commencement is one of the rituals so important in our society. More than any other, it marks the passage from childhood to adulthood. As your graduate walks off the podium with diploma in hand, he knows that he is expected to support himself now. She must find housing and a job. It is an exciting moment; it may also cause some anxiety.
Your graduates will want you near, even as they rush of from one event to the next. Invite them to a special dinner at our Missoula Bed and Breakfast, where you’ll enjoy a great meal and have time to talk. Take a walk through our grounds and the adjacent National Forest. Challenge your graduate to a game of billiards. It’s important they know you are there for them, and that they feel they have space.
We have a three-night minimum during the weekend of May 15, 2010. Make yourself comfortable and take advantage of all Missoula has to offer as your graduate flutters around preparing to depart university and friends.
