SC&I will honor and celebrate the Class of 2020’s graduation virtually on Thursday, May 28. Graduates, families and friends can visit our virtual graduation site after 9 a.m. On the graduation site, each student will be represented by a personalized slide showcasing their name, degree information, a photo, and a brief message each student has written for the occasion. In addition, the site will feature videos of SC&I’s Dean Jonathan Potter, the dean’s group, department chairs, and program directors. The site will be available through the summer to enjoy and revisit.
Our virtual celebration will also include exciting messages for our graduates from a few surprising and unexpected guests, so be sure to watch SC&I’s social media on May 28 to learn about these special appearances.
In addition to the videos on the graduation website, SC&I faculty and staff have recorded special graduation shoutouts to celebrate the day.
