In a letter to the Class of 2020, Carthage College President John Swallow shared that the college will hold a virtual graduation ceremony on Saturday, May 23 to celebrate the accomplishments of graduates. Based on feedback from a recent survey of students and families, Carthage also plans to have a traditional Commencement ceremony on campus at a later date.
“Once we learn definitively when the statewide order restricting large gatherings will be lifted, we’ll determine a makeup date for the in-person ceremony,” Swallow said. “While the decisions driven by the pandemic have challenged all of us, I feel especially deeply for seniors.”
Carthage’s decision to hold a virtual commencement comes three weeks after the school decided to halt plans for an in-person Commencement, originally scheduled for May 23. More details about the virtual Commencement will be shared as the date nears.
