Commencement: Making History

7/15/2021

Live and In Person!

They’ve done it! Our Class of 2021 and Class of 2020 graduates have received their honors and awards and walked across the stage in the Commencement tent—despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though the Class of 2020’s celebratory moment was put on hold, their time has come a year later. And it was all made possible by the Mount Saint Vincent community, who made great strides to keep each other healthy.

The Class of 2021 celebrated their moment of glory in four ceremonies—Undergraduate Nursing and Accelerated and Graduate Nursing on Friday, May 21 and Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, General Science, Psychology, Sociology, Accounting, Business Administration, Communication, Data Analytics, Economics, English, Fine Arts, History, Interdisciplinary Studies, Mathematics, Modern Languages and Literatures, Philosophy, Public Policy, Religious Studies, Studio Art, Teacher Education, Visual Arts and Experimental Media, M.B.A., and Master of Science on Saturday, May 22. The exceptionally resilient Class of 2020 returned to campus Thursday, June 24.

We are so proud of our resilient graduates who transitioned to online learning efficiently in the Spring 2020, then bravely and carefully reunited with their classmates and faculty in-person in Fall 2021. Watch the livestream recordings of their ceremonies and view photos from their historic Commencement ceremonies.
