This upcoming weekend will be the 213th commencement ceremonies of the University of Vermont. Thousands of undergraduate, graduate, and medical school students will receive their diplomas after years of hard work and effort in class and in the community. The biggest ceremony, that of the undergraduates, is held on the university green (weather permitting). The forecast for Sunday looks a little damp at the moment, but we’re hoping that’ll turn around!
Many of our staffers at the Lang House are past or present UVM students, and the owner and innkeeper Kim Borsavage used to work for the College of Medicine. Additionally, many of our guests staying at the inn this upcoming weekend are parents who have visited the Lang House frequently over the course of their graduates’ career at the university. We’re delighted to host them and to be a part of the commencement weekend experience, so we’ve added a few special events to our usual list of services to ease some of the stress that can come with graduating! We’ll be welcoming our guests and their graduates for an early breakfast before the main ceremony in the morning, and Chef Courtney will be whipping up an additional delicious luncheon in between the main ceremony and the afternoon services.
We’ve had the pleasure of accommodating many university parents and students over the course of our ten years as a centrally-located inn, and we’ll miss our undergraduate staffers after they go on to bigger and better things. However, words can’t describe how excited we are for all the graduates and how proud we are of their work and accomplishments. Congratulations to UVM’s class of 2014, and see you soon!
