Commencement Ceremony Honoring the Class of 2020

All members of the Class of 2020 are able to participate free of charge in the Aug. 8 brunch and ceremony, however pre-registration is required and can be done with Alumni Weekend registration. There is no limit on the number of family or friends that can attend the ceremony, although brunch tickets must be purchased online for guests.Although this is a formal Commencement ceremony in which faculty will be in regalia, 2020 graduates do not have to bring their diplomas back to campus, and wearing a cap and gown will be optional.We truly want to celebrate the Class of 2020 during Alumni Weekend and this special ceremony.
