A Class of 2020 Celebration survey was recently sent out to students who had submitted Intent to Participate in Commencement forms to gauge what students were looking for in a virtual celebration and what their thoughts were on participating in next year's in-person Commencement ceremony. The results of this survey are guiding us to offer department-specific virtual celebrations via Zoom as well as allow all of this year's graduates to participate in next year's Commencement ceremony.

​Class of 2020 graduates - Please be sure to continue monitoring your student email for updates as the departments plan, finalize, and communicate the details of these celebrations. We will also be sure to update this webpage accordingly with celebration details.
