Commencement 2021

Colby-Sawyer College will celebrate its 183rd Commencement with an in-person ceremony on Saturday, May 8, 2021, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The event will take place outdoors on the quad with members of the Class of 2021 as well as faculty and staff members in attendance, seated a minimum distance of six feet apart. In accordance with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as state and local health officials, Colby-Sawyer has made the decision to prohibit guests from attending this event.

The event will be livestreamed on the college’s website so that friends and families can celebrate their graduates in real time, and a recording of the ceremony will be posted on YouTube shortly after its conclusion. In addition, the college’s photographer will be on hand to photograph each graduate as they receive their diploma — these photos will be made available on the college’s website at no cost.
