Commencement is our most cherished and revered tradition, one that has been held on campus every year since 1874. This year’s graduating seniors—the Class of 2020—deserve nothing less than to have their names and achievements celebrated just as their predecessors have.

Postcard Commencement 2020

Commencement 2020:

UC ShieldSince we announced the cancellation of our traditional May graduation ceremony, we have been dedicated to finding an alternative option for our students and their families. And though the spread of COVID-19 this semester may have temporarily halted that tradition, we redoubled our efforts to create a meaningful virtual event celebrating the class of 2020. 

Although compliance with Pennsylvania state guidelines for gatherings and events had prevented us from offering the series of events we had hoped for, Ursinus honors the class of 2020 for its remarkable perseverance. Our 150-year story would not be the same with this chapter.

A special thank you to all seniors who provided feedback on our plans for the virtual event, and especially those who shaped the event as readers and writers. You have shown capacity for innovation and creativity. You rose to the occasion in the face of enormous adversity, and we will always be proud of you.
