Please do not sell or give away extra Commencement tickets, as family sections with a maximum of four members are being designated in Hermann Court for our May 8 ceremonies. Any additional persons added to these family “pods” will compromise our precise seating plan and adversely affect other designated family pods. Be assured the College is going to great lengths to honor its graduates with an in-person Commencement that is as safe as possible for graduates, faculty/staff and guests. Also, note that most of our peer institutions are allocating only two tickets per graduate compared with four for WC grads.

Special Celebration for the Class of 2020

Celebration for the Class of 2020: Since the pandemic prevented us from holding an in-person Commencement last year, we are planning a special celebration event for our 2020 graduates on Saturday, May 8, at 8 p.m., in Hermann Court. Each graduate will be allowed to bring two guests. Those interested in participating must register online by APRIL 30:
