LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – The coronavirus pandemic interrupted the LU spring semester during the early March spring break, when students left campus and never returned – including seniors ready to don cap and gown. Commencement was delayed until late summer, when the virus crisis would certainly be over. Not so fast.
Today, LU has announced that spring graduates will get their commencement, but not on campus. A “virtual ceremony” will take place at 2 p.m. on Aug. 1, 2020. More details and a link will be sent at a later date. Here’s the official LU news release:
“This spring, the University announced that Commencement for the Class of 2020 will be held on August 1. After feedback from our graduates, the decision has been made to host a virtual ceremony rather than an in-person celebration. The event will take place at 2 p.m. (CT) on Saturday, August 1. Link information will be sent at a later time. Please join us as we recognize the Class of 2020 on Saturday, August 1, at 2 p.m. (CT).
