EAPS Commencement 2020

Welcome to EAPS Virtual Commencement Activities 2020

In this unprecedented time, as we strive to reshape our community for our new remote reality, our ad-hoc commencement committee has been busy finalizing plans to take our graduation celebration online. While we're all sad to not be able to see our graduates beaming in their regalia alongside friends and family, and to raise a glass in person to toast their hard-earned success, we've come up with a plan to extend the celebration across the entire week, and bring the community into your homes far away. Each day of commencement week will feature a new video premier at cookie hour, and archived here, with messages from staff, faculty, and students, and culminating with a reading of the names of each of our graduates—with a virtual hooding and diploma "ceremony". And we will top off the week with a live Zoom cookie hour toast on Friday the 29th.

Please check this space often for updates and links as our plans coalesce further!

All our best to the Class of 2020!
