Graduation Weekend Restaurant Specials

Categories: Indiana University

Indiana University's spring commencement is just weeks away, with the graduate ceremony scheduled to take place on Friday, May 6 and the undergraduate ceremony on Saturday, May 7. For those planning a celebration of their grad(s) post-commencement, we've rounded up restaurant specials & policies during graduation weekend to make your planning as easy as possible. Check back frequently for updates — this list will be added to as the big day gets nearer.

Please be kind!
