The Class of 2020 Returns

Cap-and-gown photos in front of the Chapel, popping bottles of champagne by the Oreo, Commencement Mass on Rowen Campus Green, warm embraces and celebratory selfies with their fellow graduates—more than 1,100 members of the Class of 2020 were able to enjoy these typical Senior Week traditions and more when they returned to campus for Celebration Weekend on June 3–5, 2022. And, of course, the moment they all waited for: Walking across the stage to accept their degrees with nearly 3,500 guests cheering them on.
