Commencement for the Class of 2021 will be held on Sunday, May 23, and Commencement for the Class of 2020 on Sunday, May 30. Both events will be held in person at 9 a.m. at the new downtown Weidner Field. Each graduate will be allowed to invite two guests to the event. This year’s festivities will look different from previous years, as the college has developed its plans for the in-person ceremonies in accordance with state and county COVID-19 guidelines.
Health and safety remain the college’s top priority, and all graduates will be required to have a COVID-19 test on campus the Friday before each Sunday ceremony. Guests are encouraged to be tested on the Friday before Commencement at one of the testing sites available in Colorado Springs. As always, family members and friends who cannot attend are invited to watch the livestream ceremony.
Other end-of-year commemorations include the 2021 Honors Convocation, which can be viewed via webinar at 11 a.m., Tuesday, May 11. The annual program includes departmental awards, all-college awards, and awards from the Colorado College Student Government Association. The Baccalaureate address will be delivered virtually, as will the honorary degree ceremony. Links to view these pre-recorded events will be posted when they are available.
