Grad Finale Provides Valencia’s First Fall Term Graduation Celebration

Tuesday, December 14, 2021

For the first time ever, Valencia College celebrated graduates during a fall celebration — Grad Finale — which took place from Thursday, December 9 through Saturday, December 11, 2021, on the East, Osceola and West Campuses. Graduates and their family members drove through the events, many with decorated cars and cameras ready.

The College created the event with two photo opportunities: one taken by a professional photographer next to a Valencia leader wearing regalia on an outdoor stage, and a celebratory selfie station — a favorite for students to take photos with their family and friends. Again, this semester, Universal Orlando generously donated its creativity, imagination and expertise by designing the special sets and assisting with the setup.

Prior to the event, over 1,300 registered students were mailed a graduate box with a cap, gown, tassel, diploma cover and a Valencia College license plate holder. All participating graduates will also receive an invitation to Valencia’s 2022 Commencement in spring.

Thank you to the more than 350 employees collegewide who volunteered to assist with Grad Finale.
