Virtual Commencement

The commencement exercises for the Class of 2021 will be held online on Sunday, May 9, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

With the coronavirus still significantly present in our communities, an online ceremony will allow us to celebrate you and your accomplishments in the safest way possible. We will honor you as individuals and you’ll be a part of a special communal experience online. We are focused on celebration, the sense of occasion, being with friends and recognizing your unique place in human history. The resilient Class of 2021 will be forever immortalized! Our wish is to create a memorable, uplifting moment for you.
