Sage Graduates at Commencement

Commencement 2020

In light of the COVID-19 prohibition of mass gatherings, the Sage Commencement ceremony is postponed. There is so much uncertainty about when mass gatherings will be allowed that we do not want to set a date and then be forced to change it again. Instead, we will follow the progress of our public health and schedule a ceremony when it is clear that it is safe to do so. The date and location of the ceremony will thus be determined and announced at a later time. But rest assured that we will hold a live, in-person Commencement ceremony when it becomes feasible. Stay tuned for more details. Note that May graduates will still receive their diplomas by mail in June.

The College has created a website celebrating our graduates, and it will become available at the time commencement exercises were to have started: 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 16. This is not a live ceremony—you can check it out any time after that 10 a.m. debut. The site will offer video congratulations from various Sage departments, pictures submitted by graduates, a list of all graduating students, and recognition of student honors and awards.

We look forward to the day our real ceremony can take place, but we still wanted to honor the tremendous accomplishments of our graduates on the day their graduation from Sage becomes official.
