Join us in commemorating our University of Findlay class of 2020 graduates! Commencement ceremonies across the country have been altered this year due to unforeseen circumstances, so honoring our graduates this year is sure to be a historic event.
With a total of 1,028 students, ranging from the age of 20 to 66, the class of 2020 has completed a total of 20 associate degrees, 515 bachelor degrees, 336 master degrees, and 157 doctorate degrees. This is no small feat and the University is working diligently to recognize the dedication and hard work of students both inside and outside the classroom.
While the University is unable to hold a traditional commencement ceremony at this time, graduates will be honored with a Virtual Oiler Grad Celebration on the University website, social media, and the Oiler App. Monday, May 11, the University of Findlay will begin a week-long celebration of the 2020 graduating class. Throughout the week, graduates will be recognized in the following ways:
- Digital Commencement Program listing each graduate’s name
- Special messages from Dr. Fell, faculty, and alumni
- A first-person view of the Griffith Memorial Arch Ceremony
- Videos from parents and families congratulating their graduates
- Reflections on favorite memories from grads
Findlay believes that all graduates deserve the opportunity to celebrate this significant moment and academic accomplishments, and the University plans to do just that. The May virtual celebration will not replace commencement and the University is working on putting together a formal commencement. President Katherine Fell, Ph.D., wants to assure all graduates and their families that, “as soon as it’s safe to do so, we will plan an appropriate and beautiful graduation ceremony for you on our campus.”
