118th annual commencement


when we were forced to postpone commencement in may 2020, we indicated that we would reschedule it at some point during the 2020 fall semester. in stating that, we assumed that coronavirus restrictions would ease off, making mass gatherings possible. that has not been the case. therefore, we cannot yet set a date for the rescheduled may 2020 commencement. as soon as we are able, we will do so and communicate it to you. thank you for your patience and understanding.
