Weather Forces New Location for Virginia Union Commencement

Due to inclement weather, Virginia Union University has moved the Commencement Ceremony scheduled for 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 11 to Saint Paul’s Baptist Church, located at 4247 Creighton Road in Richmond, Virginia.  Unfortunately, the smaller venue requires that all persons must have tickets in order to enter the ceremony.  There will be no general admission.  Tickets will be distributed to graduating seniors at Commencement rehearsal, which will be held Thursday, May 9 at 1:30 p.m. in Coburn Hall. 

Baccalaureate Service will still be held on Friday, May 10 at 6:00 p.m. in the Allix B. James Chapel of Coburn Hall.  The speaker for the Baccalaureate Service is Rev. Dr. Calvin O. Butts, III, pastor of Abyssinian Baptist Church in New York.

Commencement speaker is Actor/Director/Producer Delroy Lindo.
