Class of 2020, it's finally time to celebrate you—in person and in full!
Concordia University Wisconsin will honor its Class of 2020 graduates with a special commencement ceremony on Saturday, Oct. 16 at 5 p.m. in the Chapel of Christ Triumphant. Alumni who graduated in 2020 are invited to register to attend.
In 2020, due to the ongoing threat of the coronavirus pandemic, Concordia moved its May and December commencement ceremonies to a virtual format. The upcoming celebration gives graduates the opportunity to relive their milestone, this time in person, and mark the occasion with their loved ones alongside them.
The special commencement ceremony will coincide with Concordia’s Homecoming and Family Weekend celebrations, providing plenty of additional opportunities for fun. Homecoming week runs from Oct. 11-16, with Family Weekend (Oct. 15-17) overlapping at the end. An alumni reception will take place after Saturday’s home football game. Stay tuned for more details on the week’s events.
