Northwestern College Postpones 2020 Commencement
April 09, 2020 11:47am
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and guidelines for responsible social distancing, Northwestern College has postponed the 2020 commencement ceremony that was previously scheduled for May 9.
The event is now tentatively scheduled for Saturday, July 18, with a back-up option of Sunday, Sept. 20, as part of Raider Nation Celebration (Homecoming), if the pandemic prevents a July gathering. A schedule of events will be developed as the dates draw closer.
We surveyed graduating students about how they would like to celebrate commencement, says President Greg Christy, and they overwhelmingly voiced their desire to have an in-person ceremony. July was their first choice, with the September date their second preference. Their response significantly influenced our leadership teams decision.
Commencement is a very important rite of passage, both for those who will be graduating and for our faculty and staff, says Christy. We look forward to marking this occasion and milestone accomplishment with students and their families.
