We host a variety of events throughout the year, several of which are ideally suited for parents and families.
Mercy Day of Service — Join USJ students, staff, and faculty in the University’s annual community service event, on campus and in the greater community.
Investiture — Investiture marks the transition from sophomore to junior year. It is celebrated each November in the Chapel with a moving ceremony that celebrates the accomplishments of the junior class.
Festival of Lights — USJ’s annual Advent ceremony features Christmas music performed by the University choirs, dance, scripture, and the communal lighting of candles.
Commencement — the ultimate celebration! The 2016 Commencement will take place on May 7 on campus, at 10:00 a.m. for undergraduates and 3:00 p.m. for graduate students. Check here for up-to-date information.
All events are listed on our online calendar.
