Cross the Quad 

May 17 and May 18, 2021

All graduates who would like to celebrate in person can joined CU Denver's first-ever “Cross the Quad” celebration. Instead of a traditional, seated ceremony, graduates crossed the stage in front of the historic Tivoli building to symbolize the completion of their studies at CU Denver and the beginning of their next phase of life. Graduate names were announced, diploma covers were presented, and professional photographers captured the moment. Cross the Quad was livestreamed and recorded, and can be viewed any time via the links below.
