Celebrating the Classes of 2020

On Sunday, May 17 at 10:30 a.m. — the moment when their on-campus ceremony was scheduled to begin — the graduating Classes of 2020 will be celebrated with the launch of a Commencement 2020 website.

Designed to recognize HWS graduates who have earned their degrees during this extraordinary year, the site will contain video well wishes from dozens of members of the HWS community, including faculty, staff and alums.

The site will also feature a list of each graduate and their honors, officially conferring 464 Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees, 8 Master of Arts in Teaching degrees and 2 College Experience certificates.

Congratulations will also be shared across social media platforms. You can support the Classes of 2020 by using the #HWSGrad2020 hashtag and tagging @hwscolleges in your posts.

The Colleges will announce the date of an in-person Commencement ceremony in early June.
