AU will follow tradition, hosting its 133rd commencement ceremony on Mother’s Day weekend with roughly 3,500 graduates. Individual school ceremonies will be held on May 13 and 14; the Washington College of Law graduates on May 21. Media interested in attending must RSVP to by 1 p.m. on Friday, May 12.
