About the event

This event is open to the public. Feel free to invite friends and family. It would be best to tell us how many people you will be bringing so we can plan to have seating for guests. Pictures and videos are allowed.

All UJJ students are welcomed and encouraged to attend the graduation. Plus Professor loves to have a picture with the whole team in it. Graduates should arrive early if they need to stretch or practice. All students must bring sandals and should bring water.
