Congratulations to members of the Class of 2020 on graduating from Kenyon! This is an accomplishment at any time, but never more so than in 2020, given the COVID-19 pandemic. It speaks to your drive, determination and resilience.
Kenyon made the difficult decision to postpone its 192nd Commencement ceremony, originally scheduled for May 16, 2020, due to the pandemic. We are continuing our work with the Class of 2020 to find a suitable date for their on-campus Commencement ceremony. However, the uncertainty around the progression of COVID-19 and the physical distancing practices that are necessary for large public gatherings make it impractical for us to plan an event in 2020. We remain committed to celebrating this occasion with you at a date to be determined in 2021.
Diplomas have been mailed to all graduating seniors at the address previously provided to the Registrar’s Office. If you do not receive your diploma by the end of summer, please email email@example.com.
We appreciate your understanding as we work to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students, family members, and the greater campus community. Thank you.
