Are you and your family planning to attend Commencement 2018? Remember to use our free APUS University Events app, which contains all the information you’ll need to make the most of a memorable weekend!

What 2018 Commencement Information Is in the App?

The app has multiple features for your convenience, including:

  • A schedule of all events, including the Service Event, the Welcome Reception, the Alumni Rally and both graduation ceremonies (undergraduate and graduate)
  • An interactive map to help you find events at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center
  • The appearance schedule for our mascots Jake and Valor
  • Local restaurant options
  • Area attractions worth visiting if you plan to stay longer

The app also has an Activity Stream, which is similar to a Facebook NewsFeed. You can ask questions, post images, and exchange messages with other students, university staff and faculty members.
