LINCOLN UNIVERSITY – Graduating seniors are walking across the stage once again, but not all on the same day and time. To keep some sort of social distancing, the university is holding five different commencements in Mitchell Auditorium. The ceremonies are divided by school/degree program.

The spring of 2020 seniors were unable to hold graduation due to the campus being closed by COVID-19.

By all accounts, the graduation gatherings have been very successful. Graduating seniors were allowed to bring six guests into the auditorium. Many students appreciated the abbreviated commencement, with most ceremonies taking less than one hour to complete.

Congrats to all Blue Tiger graduating seniors!
