Commencement Ceremony Pronunciation

Please also specify how, and whether, to announce your middle name or initial. We encourage you to consider leaving an email with this information versus calling - if you feel you can explain the pronunciation over email tha often works better. Please send the email directly to Vice President Jim Ostrow at email@example.com. Please note that the deadline for receiving voice mail or email information on how to pronounce your name is May 8, 2015.
