Commencement

Marylhurst's 2014 commencement ceremony will be held in the Portland Ballroom of the Oregon Convention Center. Located in a private corner of the center, the space is small enough to maintain an intimate environment while still offering enough seating for as many guests as you choose to invite. The convenient location offers ample on-site parking and easy access to MAX and bus lines.
