Congratulations Class of 2020

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic requires us to postpone Wooster's in-person Commencement exercises, one of our most important and celebrated traditions. We very much look forward to an in-person ceremony, with processions, student speeches, and the calling of every name in the Class of 2020, when it is safe to gather on campus to do so. We are polling the Class of 2020 to get a sense of what timing is best, and we will ensure our final date provides adequate time to plan.

In the meantime, degrees for graduating seniors will be conferred May 11, 2020, during a virtual Commencement ceremony that marks the Class of 2020 as officially graduates of the College of Wooster, and their transcripts (and our records) will reflect that. We invite students, families, alumni and the entire College of Wooster community to join us here for this special ceremony!
