In consideration of the State and federal guidelines and feedback we have received from many graduates of the Graduate Class of 2020, we will be holding a virtual Graduate Commencement ceremony this spring for members of our graduate Class of 2020 on Saturday, May 15 at 9:30 a.m.
On Saturday, May 15 at 9:30 a.m. Fairfield University will be holding a virtual Graduate Commencement ceremony for members of our graduate Class of 2020.
Putting the safety and welfare of Fairfield’s students, families, faculty, and staff above all else, representatives from every area of the University have been hard at work over the past year to explore every possible scenario for our Commencement ceremonies. As the pandemic has continued to evolve, the University has worked directly with the State of Connecticut, Town of Fairfield, and Department of Public Health to determine the best approach. These final plans are the result of all those efforts.
The Class of 2020 Commencement Ceremony will take place virtually on Sunday, May 15, at 9:30 a.m. Check your email and visit fairfield.edu/commencement over the next few weeks for more details.
Although we all hoped to be together in person, we have every confidence that a virtual Commencement can — and will — be a joyous occasion for you and your families. Please know that we will do our best to make your Commencement a memorable experience.
While we were not able to host our traditional Baccalaureate Mass this year, we are excited to host a 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mass on Sunday, May 16 as well as an 11 a.m. Mass on Sunday, May 23 in celebration of all Class of 2020 and Class of 2021 graduates.
All Masses can be joined virtually here.
