Class of 2021 Celebrations (In-Person!)
We invite the Class of 2021 to attend a celebration at MMC on Main Campus on Sunday, May 23, 2021, health and safety permitting. To maintain social distancing, we can accommodate graduates only (not family and friends), and gatherings will take place at different times, as determined by field of study.
11:00 am-12:30 pm: Business, Sciences, and Humanities and Social Sciences
2:00-3:30 pm: Communication and Media Arts, Art and Art History, and Dance
5:00-6:30 pm: Theatre Arts
Graduates will receive a separate e-vite and are asked to RSVP so we are able to track attendance and plan appropriately for this in-person celebration.
Please keep in mind that while recent news of declining cases and increased vaccinations have brought hope that the end of the pandemic is near, we are still living in uncertain times. Our plans for in-person celebrations are contingent on guidance allowing larger gatherings and your commitment to honoring the health and safety protocols in place on May 23. We will continue to monitor State and local guidelines and advisories leading up to Commencement weekend, and will share any updates with you as soon as possible.
Senior Class Speaker
Each year, one senior is selected to speak at the Commencement Ceremony. The Senior Speaker represents the senior class in front of family, friends, and faculty gathered to celebrate this milestone achievement.
We are inviting graduating seniors to “audition” for the Senior Speaker role. To learn more and sign-up for an audition, visit the Senior Class Speaker webpage.
