EAST LANSING, MI — All commencement ceremonies at Michigan State University for fall 2020 graduates will be held virtually, the university announced Thursday.
More than 2,600 graduates will be recognized Dec. 18 and 19 at commencement ceremonies that will be streamed on the MSU commencement website, according to a university release. The names of graduates will be scrolled on the screens at the end of the ceremonies, the release said.
“I am incredibly proud of these students for not only completing their degrees but doing so under such difficult circumstances,” said MSU President Samuel L. Stanley Jr. “It is fitting to have three highly accomplished alumni serving as our keynote speakers. They remind us of the impact we can have on the world as Spartans.”
Scheduling for spring 2021 commencement is currently being developed, according to the commencement website. Details will be posted in late January, according to the website.
