NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma has announced its lineup of individual college convocations and other end-of-year academic ceremonies.

OU previously announced that Fareed Zakaria, one of the nation’s leading critical thinkers who serves as editor-at-large of TIME and as a Washington Post columnist, will deliver OU’s university-wide commencement address on Friday, May 10. Zakaria will receive an honorary degree at the 7 p.m. ceremony in The Gaylord Family — Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, 180 W. Brooks St.

Commencement is the ceremony where degrees are officially conferred. Filled with pageantry, it is the time for all 2012-13 graduates to celebrate the culmination of their time at OU. Doctoral degree candidates are recognized during this time.

At the individual college convocations, all other graduates will be recognized, have their photographs taken and their diplomas presented by their dean. Unless otherwise noted, all convocations will be Saturday, May 11. Some events require tickets and/or have participation restrictions.
