VU Alternative Commencement

May 16, 2018

On Tuesday, Vanderbilt staged an alternative commencement for eight student-athletes who were unable to take part in Commencement ceremonies last Friday due to athletic competition.

The event was held at the Sarratt Cinema on campus with degrees being conferred by Vanderbilt Chancellor Nicholas S. Zeppos. Zeppos, along with Vice Chancellor for Athletics and University Affairs and Athletics Director David Williams II, addressed the graduates alongside their families, teammates and coaches.

Tuesday's group featured athletes from the Commodores' track and field team including Courtney Clayton, Maddie Criscione, Jennifer Edobi and Megan Huebner. Men's tennis seniors Tate Allwardt, Baker Newman and Daniel Valent also received their diplomas as did baseball's Paxton Stover.
