As Commencement approaches, the public relations office would like to remind graduating seniors that a system is in place for the university to send graduation announcements to your local newspapers. In accordance with federal privacy regulations, we will include you in these announcements only if you give us your permission through the WebCenter. To access Web Center, go to the SIS portal and then go to the Student Living tab and click on the link for Web Center.
Log into WebCenter and visit the “Hometown News Release” function to authorize this service. If you choose to opt into this system, the newspaper announcements will potentially include your name, home city, state, major, degree earned, and honors.
If you have any questions, please call the public relations office at 617-627-4703.
