Commencement Bon Jovi Picture in Picture

Commencement 2017

Tuesday, May 16, 2017, at MetLife Stadium

Over 3,000 students from 54 countries and 41 states received their degrees in Fairleigh Dickinson University's 74th annual commencement event, but not before Bon Jovi had rocked MetLife Stadium with a surprise visit.

Grad Greetings

Graduates took the opportunity to record a "Grad Greetings" video, which was played on the big screens at the stadium and can be viewed on Youtube now.

Video of the Event

The 2017 FDU Commencement ceremony was live on the web on May 16, 2017. Family and friends unable to attend the ceremony at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey could view the event online with appropriate Internet access. The archive video is available for viewing on Youtube.
