Congratulations, Class of 2021!

Participate in Events and Traditions

A number of traditions and events will be held for all graduates, both residential and remote. Senior Week will happen May 12–15. For residential students, the majority of these events will have an in-person, on-campus component. Residential students eligible for graduation are welcome to stay on campus during that time. Details, including dates and times, will be listed here as they become available.
