Despite COVID-19 forcing campus to close for the last part of the spring semester, we are committed to. honoring our graduates in any way possible. The university will hold a virtual commencement ceremony at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 9 that will be livestreamed on Facebook and YouTube, to recognize the members of the spring Class of 2020. President Sidney A. McPhee and Provost Mark Byrnes, plus other special guests, will address the graduates and impart words of wisdom as we continue to deal with this unprecedented social distancing situation. The names of all who have applied for spring 2020 graduation will scroll onscreen during the ceremony. Those names will also be featured in a special commencement program that will be included in our True Blue Graduation Box, which will be mailed to graduates in late May. 


The True Blue Graduation Box will include:
