WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue University officials will produce on-demand commencement ceremonies for this December’s graduates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This will mark the third time on-demand commencement ceremonies have been offered.
Students who are candidates for graduation will receive information through their Purdue email in the coming weeks.
“The Purdue family looks forward every year to commencement. This year, our staff has worked with numerous groups across campus to find ways to make this part of the student experience special,” said Chris Pass, senior assistant registrar for academic records, commencement and graduation. “Commencement is a time to celebrate our students’ persistence, and we are just as persistent in providing them a great virtual experience.”
Pass said the winter commencements will include a guest speaker, student responders and the reading of the names of eligible candidates.
