May Commencement Ceremonies Have Been Postponed

We are taking all necessary steps to reduce our campus density in an effort to combat this virus. Sadly, this will include postponing our May Commencement ceremonies. This was an incredibly difficult decision to make. Commencement is undoubtedly the most joyous day of our academic year. It’s a day to celebrate the accomplishments of our students and for our students to celebrate with their loved ones. But it would be irresponsible for us to move forward as originally planned. This will also allow families to adjust travel plans with plenty of advance notice. Students, please make your families aware of this change. We will convene a small group with the objective of re-imagining our 2020 Commencement ceremonies so that our graduates can be recognized properly at some point in the future. More details will be forthcoming as we make these plans.


The Commencement Ceremonies will be streamed live, so family and friends can join the celebration from anywhere in the world.

This promises to be an exciting time as we celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates! During our ceremonies, we will recognize our students and highlight our tradition, College pride, and community spirit. Please check back to this website for updates.
