Colby-Sawyer College celebrated its 183rd Commencement on Saturday, May 8, with an in-person ceremony for its 148 graduates and faculty and staff. The ceremony, which was held on the quad, included cherished Colby-Sawyer traditions like a bagpiper-led processional and a recessional honor corridor in which faculty and staff cheered Colby-Sawyer’s newest alumni as they exited the tent.

Graduates heard from speakers who acknowledged the challenges their class faced due to the pandemic, the perseverance they showed and the skills they developed to navigate the realities of a changing world beyond Colby-Sawyer.
