What is Rainbow Graduation?

  • A place to invite your family, chosen family, close friends and/or those most important to you
  • An opportunity to honor YOU!
  • Your formal induction into the ranks of SJSU LGBTQ+ Alum
  • Although many people do get dressed up for the event, it tends to be a queer little get together, with all the uniqueness of our community, so be yourself
  • A celebration that has Great food
  • Somewhere you’d ask a favorite professor, staff member or those who have made a great positive impact on your experience at SJSU to attend
  • Lots of fun
  • The event where you get a Rainbow Tassel (Woo Hoo!)
