The college is planning to host an in-person commencement ceremony on Saturday, Aug. 8, as long as the threat of COVID-19 infection has subsided. Precautions will be taken as recommended by the CDC to ensure that all in attendance are seated at an appropriate distance apart.
As a result, seating capacity may be limited and we may need to ask graduates to limit the number of guests they invite to the ceremony. For those who are unable to attend, including students who can’t return to campus on Aug. 8, steps have been taken to livestream the event through the college's website.
Plans are also in the works to hold both the Scholars and Leaders, and Nurse Pinning Ceremonies, as well as other Senior Week activities with all necessary precautions taken. Commencement will feature the same speakers and awards that would have taken place in May, as well as the issuing of diplomas. Additional information regarding commencement will be made available in the coming weeks.
