Alumni Association launches "BYU Day" event following Commencement April 24

Brigham Young University graduates and their families will have another reason to celebrate this month with BYU Day, a new event in the Gordon B. Hinckley Alumni and Visitors Center that follows Commencement on Thursday, April 24.

"Graduation is one of the biggest events in someone's life, and BYU Day is designed to commemorate the time, energy and resources our newest graduates have used to earn this degree," says Julie Hatchett, Alumni Relations coordinator of the event. "This inaugural event promises to be an engaging evening with fireworks, reminiscing, live music, dancing and a sampling of American, Mexican and island cuisine. We hope alumni and friends will also attend."

Festivities will begin at 5:30 p.m. and continue to 9 p.m. "Commencement is great and convocations are wonderful markers, but the graduate typically is separated from friends and family during the experience," Hatchet adds. "With BYU Day they gather in the same place to relive memories and celebrate accomplishments. We also look at the celebration as a bridge between our graduates' academic life at BYU and their new lives as alumni."

Tickets are limited and are available online at alumni.byu.edu, at the Wilkinson Student Center Info Desk, and at the BYU Bookstore on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets are $15 for the class of 2008 and children 5 to 12. Alumni and friends tickets are $20.
