We Are... Celebrating!


Penn State is celebrating the accomplishments of the Class of 2020 live on Saturday, May 9, 2020, at 2:00 EDT

In celebration of the completion of the academic experience of more than 14,000 Penn State undergraduate and graduate students during this global pandemic, this virtual ceremony is the first step in recognizing the Class of 2020. The University has also committed to having students and their families return for in-person celebrations when public health guidelines allow. Potential dates, logistics, and activities for in-person recognition are currently being explored.

We look forward to celebrating with our students, their families and friends, and the Penn State community: Spring 2020 Penn State Commencement.

Follow along the whole week leading up to graduation on Twitter with hashtag #psuie2020grads for graduation information, fun quotes, throwback imagery and more! 

Christopher Biesecker, our IME spring 2020 student marshal, wishes you all the best!
