Finals 2020 Update

2020 Graduates

James E. Ryan, President

Dear Members of the Class of 2020,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing today with an update on your Final Exercises.

I am sorry to report that, given the ongoing challenges to safe travel and convenings posed by the pandemic, we are not going to be able to host a large event or ceremony for your class this year.  After consultation with the Finals 2020 Advisory Group, which includes student leaders from your class, we have decided to again postpone your in-person graduation activities to the Summer of 2022.  I realize this news may come as another disappointment, and for that I am truly sorry.

That said, I am excited by what the Advisory Group is envisioning for 2022.  This event, which will combine elements of Final Exercises and an early reunion, will provide an opportunity to walk the Lawn for those who wish to do so, as well as a chance to reconnect with classmates, friends, and faculty in meaningful ways.  As updated information becomes available, it will be posted to the Finals 2020 website

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding, and I look forward to seeing you when we gather in 2022. 

Best,
Jim
