Photo Gallery: Newhouse Convocation Ceremony

The Newhouse School celebrated the Class of 2023 at the Convocation Ceremony on a sun-splashed Saturday at Syracuse University. Inside the JMA Wireless Dome, graduates were saluted by keynote speaker Erin Westerman ’04, president of production for the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group.

Among other speakers, Timothy Cato delivered the graduate student address, while Jordan Pierre gave the undergraduate student address. Olivia Stomski, professor of practice of television, radio and film, and director of the Newhouse Sports Media Center, was presented the Newhouse Faculty Award.
