About Truett Commencement

Truett has three commencement ceremonies each year: Winter, Spring, and Summer. In the past, the commencement has taken place in the Paul Powell Chapel in the Truett Building. Recently, however, we have outgrown this space and have been fortunate to have First Baptist Waco allow us to use their sanctuary for our commencements.
