The tradition of Spring Undergraduate Commencement in Sanford Stadium is celebrated annually by more than 5000 University of Georgia students. In 2010, UGA moved the Spring Commencement ceremony to an evening event, culminating with a fireworks celebration. UGA’s first commencement was held May 31, 1804, when ten young men received bachelor of arts degrees at a ceremony in front of Old College, which was still under construction. Both the founding president Abraham Baldwin and Josiah Meigs, who presided over the 1804 commencement, were in attendance. The sheriff of the county led the processional of faculty, a tradition that continues to this day.
