Out of concern for the safety of our graduates, their families, and our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, the 533rd Convocation and the College’s Class Day and diploma ceremonies will be offered virtually this year. We invite all graduates and their families to join us for these virtual celebrations. Links to each ceremony will be provided soon.

Class Day will celebrate graduates of the College and include student speakers who are selected annually by their peers, an alumni speaker, and the presentation of College awards. Distinguished cancer researcher Otis W. Brawley, SB’81, MD’85, has been named the invited speaker for this year’s ceremony.

Class Day
June 12, 2020

The College is proud to recognize the incredible achievements of our graduates during our College Diploma Ceremonies. A UChicago tradition, the College Diploma Ceremonies invite students to return to their residential communities to celebrate graduation with those with whom they began their academic journey. Each ceremony is presided over by a resident dean and features remarks, speeches and the reading of the names of each graduate.

This year’s virtual ceremonies will take place on Sunday, June 14, 2020 throughout the day at the times listed below.
