GradFest is almost here – don’t miss this chance to celebrate your accomplishments and connect with classmates, faculty, and staff before you leave City Colleges. Events include a mandatory graduation orientation where participating students will receive guest tickets for commencement, an opportunity to take your official grad photos, and activities to prepare you for your next step.

Check out the GradFest schedules to view a full list of events at your college. Remember, you must attend an orientation session to receive your guest tickets. Tickets to the UIC Pavilion will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. After pavilion tickets are gone, tickets for the overflow tent, located next to the pavilion, will be distributed.
