2020 Commencement

Jul 25

Commencement will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2020 in Hamilton Arena of the Jeanne Knoerle Sports and Recreation Center. Commencement will be broken into two ceremonies, one for graduates of the campus program and another for graduates of Woods Online and master’s programs.

For Spring 2020 graduating ring recipients, we are combining a Ring Ceremony with the Baccalaureate Mass for all graduating campus, Woods Online and master’s students. We will incorporate the meaningful traditions of this ceremony, including co-presenters, into the liturgy as we work to celebrate each students’ accomplishments.

The July 25 schedule will be as follows:

  • 10 a.m. Commencement for graduates of the campus program
  • 1 p.m. Baccalaureate Mass and Ring Ceremony
  • 4 p.m. Commencement for graduates of the Woods Online and master’s programs

Graduates will be allowed up to eight guests for the Commencement events. The Commencement ceremonies will be available for viewing on the internet via livestream. The names of each graduate will be read aloud and photos of graduates unable to attend in person will be displayed during the ceremony to honor those participating virtually.

More information regarding the details of these events and a link to RSVP for the July 25 events will be shared through email by the Registrar’s Office.
