Dear Class of 2020 alumni and families,
The Ithaca College Commencement Committee, Class of 2020 officers, and members of the college’s leadership have been collaborating closely over the past several weeks to create a celebratory virtual program for our Class of 2020 graduates and their loved ones this summer.
We’ve been very fortunate that Chrissy Guest, associate professor in the Department of Media Arts, Sciences, and Studies, and some of her colleagues in the Park School have joined our effort. Their creativity and innovation have allowed us to think outside the box to envision engaging programming that fully embraces the fun and possibilities of a virtual environment.
Because we want our 2020 virtual commencement to be as student-centered as possible, we have decided to celebrate each school independently. The intimacy of these smaller virtual celebrations will mean more focused attention on our graduates and less time sitting in front of a computer screen. Similar to our “regular” in-person ceremony, all of our graduates in attendance will be individually recognized.
