Congratulations to the Class of 2021! This is one of the most exciting times of the year as we prepare to recognize your accomplishments and celebrate the promising journey ahead.

Celebrating the Class of 2021

We are pleased to announce that Simmons will celebrate your accomplishments on campus during one of four in-person events hosted by your college. During the event, you will have the opportunity to wear your cap and gown, have your name called, and be recognized for your achievements. The event will feature a stage and photographers will take photos.

We understand how important it is that you have an opportunity to mark this major milestone as you conclude this chapter at Simmons. These events will allow you to celebrate with your college community, while also serving as a complement to the virtual Commencement on May 28, 2021 that will include students, families, faculty, and staff from across the University.

The on-campus events are part of a series of meaningful, magical, and memorable Commencement Week activities that will celebrate your graduation and enable you to connect with friends, faculty, staff, and the University.

We continue to monitor the latest on the pandemic, and as always, final decisions about campus events will be dictated by public health guidelines.
