UrFU graduation ceremony to be held on June 30

Ural Federal University will host a university-wide graduation ceremony on June 30 that will take place on three different stages.

Graduates will gather in their respective schools to meet with their mentors, teachers and fellow students. Diplomas will be awarded on the main square in front of the university at 5 p.m. The diplomas will handed to graudates by university leaders, school directors and department heads.

The final celebration will include a disco at Yekaterinburg Expo, where well known DJs and the Russian rock group Animals will perform. The festival will last until 6 a.m., an unprecedented celebration for the school.

Last year, the university awarded almost 6,000 bachelor's and master's degrees at graduation-- a record for the institution.
