Western’s Commencement Committee finalizes graduation plans
Sydney Carpenter | News Editor
Over Spring Break, the Western Oregon University Commencement Committee completed their discussion on how the 2021 Commencement ceremony will be hosted.
According to the email sent out to seniors on March 29, the committee has decided to hold both a virtual and an in person celebration.
For the in person celebration, students and their families will decorate their cars and drive along a designated “celebration route.” At the end of the drive, each student will be able to walk across a graduation stage while being photographed by a professional photographer and their family, if desired. These celebrations will take place on June 12 and June 13.
For students who are living off campus due to the pandemic, the committee has decided to host a virtual Commencement ceremony where all of the graduates’ names will be read. The virtual ceremony will be available on June 11 at 6 p.m.
Students interested in participating in both events will need to RSVP by visiting wou.edu/graduation/ by May 4 in order to participate.
