Graduation cap with the text "Class of 2020"

Though we could not hold our usual in-person graduation and completion ceremonies this semester, we look forward to celebrating with you in person in the future when possible. In the meantime, our college is still committed to celebrating everyone who completed their programs. Each department put together some kind of virtual celebration for their students, such as congratulatory videos, special messages on their websites and social media platforms, and mailed completion packets. We want to celebrate you all and recognize your many achievements! Read about our virtual celebrations and recognitions
