Congratulations Class of 2020
An update from President Grigsby on August 7, 2020 - Homecoming and Commencement for the Class of 2020: From what we know at this moment, it does not look likely that we are able to hold Homecoming or Commencement. We have looked at a variety of in person graduation options for the Class of 2020, but all seem to put the campus at risk or violate the recommendations of the governor or CDC. While virtual graduation provides something unique for the Class of 2020, we feel that they are somewhat less than the graduates deserve.
Therefore, we are planning to have two graduation ceremonies in May 2021: one to recognize the Class of 2020 and another to recognize the Class of 2021. More information about this will come out nearer to the time, but I would like to announce that Moravian College will purchase the robes for the Class of 2020 to thank them for all they have done to demonstrate resilience, flexibility and that hound’em determination.
Baccalaureate will be held on Friday, May 8, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. at the Central Moravian Church, located at 73 W. Church Street in Bethlehem.
On Saturday, May 9, 2020, Moravian's undergraduate, graduate, and seminary students will come together in one joyful graduation celebration!
Commencement exercises will begin at 10:00am, on the John Makuvek Field behind the Haupert Union Building on the North Campus. The ceremony will conclude the 278th academic year at Moravian, America’s sixth-oldest college. Unless there is severe weather, the Commencement ceremony generally continues outside. If rain is expected, please come prepared.
In the case of severe weather on Saturday, commencement will be held in the Breidegam Field House (also known as the ARC) on Moravian’s north campus. Click here for more details.
For those who cannot come to campus, there will be a live telecast accessible online: moravian.edu/watch
