    Celebrating the Class of 2020

    While degrees will be conferred this May for everyone who has completed their requirements, we want to celebrate you in the way you wish, and when it is safe to do so. Therefore, Commencement for the Class of 2020 has been rescheduled and will be held on the Colorado College campus in May 2021. Graduates and their families and friends will be invited back to campus that weekend, reuniting with friends, professors, advisors, and staff while experiencing the traditions that are part of a Colorado College Commencement. We are working on raising funds so that all members of the Class of 2020 can attend, regardless of their financial circumstances.

    After surveying seniors and their family members, the vast majority of respondents said they want to celebrate when it’s safe, with a traditional on-campus Commencement. You want to walk across the stage in your cap and gown, and soak in that moment of hard-earned achievement. And it is important for you to share that moment – with your classmates and loved ones.

    We’re also celebrating the Class of 2020 in other ways this year. Watch your email on Sunday, May 31, 2020 for good wishes from CC and keep an eye out for a special box from CC with your diploma, a cap, tassel, and more, so you can celebrate with your families.

    You can now order graduation announcements and gifts:

    As you celebrate and share to social media, use the hashtags #coloradocollege2020 and #CCTigersTogether so the whole community can join in celebrating the achievements of graduating Colorado College seniors.

    In addition to this information about Commencement for the Class of 2020, read President Jill Tiefenthaler’s message to the class and their families.
