Dear Graduating Students, We are excited to announce that, in addition to our virtual convocation celebration, we have been given permission to offer a unique in-person opportunity on the afternoon of Friday, May 21, 2021 for graduating students. While the in-person experience will be abbreviated, it will include:
Your name being read aloud
Processing to be hooded by a faculty member
Having a photo taken with Dean Postmus
Regalia is not required to participate.
