Emmaus Graduation Weekend
Raju Kunjummen, Bible and Theology Faculty at Emmaus Bible College in Dubuque, IA
Dear Emmaus Parents:

Hello from Emmaus Bible College.  Preparations are underway to celebrate our 2022 graduating class during Commencement Weekend.  This weekend is a highlight in our academic year; full of time for reflection, celebration, and thanksgiving.


On Friday, May 6, 2022 at 7:30 PM, the Emmaus Bible College Baccalaureate Ceremony will take place in the Emmaus Marble Chapel. This special event is designed to honor our graduates with outstanding achievement and academic merit. It is also a time to exhort and charge the graduating seniors from scripture before they receive their degrees and leave campus as alumnus/ae. This is a special time where we say “well done” to this year’s graduates.
