Fall 2019 Commencement
The ceremony will mark a defining moment for 244 new graduates. The university will award 157 bachelor’s degrees, 82 master’s degrees and five doctoral degrees. This ceremony will celebrate the first graduating class for the Master of Arts in Public History program. For the first time, the ceremony will also include recognition of a graduating student who has served as Rattler Man mascot throughout his time at St. Mary’s.
The San Antonio Business Journal named Samandi to its “40 under 40” list in 2018 for his work on extended learning opportunities with Summer of Service, a nonprofit dedicated to providing San Antonio youth with experiential learning opportunities outside the classroom through community service and travel abroad. Samandi is also the partnerships director for the San Antonio Independent School District’s CAST Tech High School with Tech Bloc.
Commencement will begin at 1:30 p.m. in Bill Greehey Arena, inside the Alumni Athletics & Convocation Center on the St. Mary’s campus.
