CHADRON – Chadron State College President Randy Rhine announced Thursday during an all-campus meeting that the 2020 Winter Undergraduate and Graduate Commencement Ceremonies have been postponed. However, the college does plan to honor its winter graduates during a virtual ceremony.
The winter ceremonies, originally scheduled for Dec. 18, will occur at a future date.
“Postponing the in-person ceremonies for our winter graduates was not an easy decision,” Rhine said. “Commencement is a major milestone for students, as well as our faculty and staff, but the college chose to postpone these events based on feedback received from students as well as the committee that plans and prepares the ceremonies. CSC received an overwhelmingly positive response for its virtual commencement in the spring and we’re excited to honor our winter graduates in that format.”
The college’s fall semester ends Nov. 25. Classes in the December session begin Nov. 30 and conclude Dec. 18.
Rhine said winter graduates will have the opportunity to be recognized during the Spring 2021 commencement ceremonies, if they choose to attend.
The college’s virtual commencement will debut Dec. 18 at 2 p.m.
