Congratulations Class of 2020

Spring 2020 Commencement, postponed to May 8, 2021

The Commencement ceremony is an important milestone that marks a significant achievement for graduates. It is our desire to ensure that students and their families have an authentic Commencement experience. To this end, we are postponing Spring 2020 Commencement to Spring 2021 at a date to be announced. This date change will include participation from spring, summer, and fall 2020 graduates and Spring 2021 graduates.

We continue to stand together during this unprecedented time. Once we come through this crisis situation, we will evolve stronger and better. We will keep the Lion Family abreast of new developments.
