Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, March 31, 2020
In light of the spread of COVID-19, commencement for Holy Cross’ class of 2020 has been postponed to the beginning of the upcoming fall semester, College President Fr. David Tyson said in an email to seniors Monday evening.
Current students, along with graduating seniors, faculty, staff and administration will gather to celebrate the class of 2020 during a “Welcome Home Celebration” Sept. 4-6.
“It would be a first in that all of the student body will be present along with the faculty, staff and administration,” Tyson said in the email.
The ‘Welcome Home Celebration’ will include a baccalaureate mass on Sept. 4, with commencement itself to be held on Sept. 5 at 2 p.m., Tyson said.
“It would be a great symbol for our newest students to see the culmination of hard work and growth in the academic ritual of commencement,” Tyson said.
