Princeton University's 265th Commencement activities begin with Baccalaureate, one of Princeton's oldest traditions, scheduled for Sunday, June 3, at 2:00 pm in the University Chapel. This is an end-of-year interfaith service that includes prayers and readings from various religious and philosophical traditions, as well as an address by a guest speaker. This year’s guest speaker will be author and journalist Michael Lewis, ’82; a Princeton graduate whose best-selling books include "Moneyball," "The Blind Side" and "Liar's Poker.” The service begins with an academic procession of faculty, trustees, administrators and undergraduate degree candidates. Seating in the chapel is limited to members of the senior class and the faculty procession. Ticketed guest seating (each senior receives two tickets for family and guests) is from 1pm to 1:30pm and seating is available both outdoors in front of the chapel (audio system and large-screen TV), and in various lecture rooms, some air conditioned, near the chapel, where the ceremony is simulcast. The ceremony ends by about 3:15 p.m.
