The commencement ceremony for the Class of 2020 will take place at Ray and Sue Smith Stadium on Saturday evening. This year’s commencement speaker will be Associate Professor of Religion Dr. Jared Ortiz.
The rain location for commencement will be DeVos Fieldhouse. In the event that the ceremony must move to DeVos, tickets will be strictly limited; it is important for graduates and families to be prepared for this possibility, as we regret we will not be able to offer additional tickets for guests. However, there will be overflow spaces on campus where guests can gather to watch the livestream.
Livestream: Both commencement and baccalaureate will be livestreamed. Graduates, families and friends unable to attend the on-campus ceremonies are invited to join the celebration remotely.
Additional details to come: We will be sharing more details about additional activities planned for commencement weekend. Please check Hope’s commencement website regularly for updates. We also will be offering suggestions for lodging options for families.
