Class of 2020 Virtual Celebration

Mark the Occasion

These are unusual times, Gauchos. We know that the sadness caused by having to postpone your Commencement ceremony is real. Together, we wait for the day when we can celebrate your unique accomplishments in person. For now, we hope you’ll join in on the virtual celebration taking place starting on June 13 at 9 a.m. Pacific Time. In addition, we’re offering a few other fun ways to mark the occasion online. Share this page with your friends and family, too, so they can celebrate you reaching this milestone! 

For Our Graduates

If you’re up for it, take a few moments to participate in one or more of the digital activities below.

Henley Gate Comes To You

The annual tradition goes virtual. At least until we can return to campus to experience the real deal. Upload a photo of yourself and we’ll send it back with Henley Gate behind you. 

Bring me Henley Gate.
