Brigham Young College graduates from 1905

The college held graduation exercises most often in Nibley Hall or the Logan Tabernacle for both college and high school graduates. It also held graduation exercises for eight graders of the BYC Training School. The events would often consist of a play put on by the students; speeches from the president of the college, the salutatorian, and valedictorian; prayers and a benediction; and music from the college orchestra, choir, or ladies glee club. The commencement weekend sometimes included an event for alumni such as a banquet and ball.
