Get Involved in Commencement 2020

Congratulations Class of 2020 - You Made It!

On June 11, graduates will receive an email with a link to the livestream and our Commencement website. During the livestream, you can comment, in real time, your excitement and congratulatory words about the event.

After the stream has finished, you will be able to share the video and the Commencement site with your friends and family using the same links that were provided in your email. We don't intend to take the site down, so you can come back to enjoy it whenever you would like.

We want to bring the excitement of a physical event to this virtual ceremony and congratulate our graduates on completing their degree - no matter the obstacle - for themselves and their future. That’s where you come in!

Here are a few ways students, family, friends, faculty and staff can celebrate the 2020 graduating class!
