On behalf of Loma Linda University, I would like to invite you and your family to attend our 114th commencement, on September 5-6, 2020.
As many of you know, a few weeks ago, we made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person commencement ceremonies and related events scheduled in May and June of this year, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This was very disappointing to all of us, and especially those of you who expected to celebrate the completion of your academic achievements. We immediately went to work exploring the best way to honor and recognize our graduates, and a plan was developed for a fall commencement weekend. While we recognize that some of our graduates will not be able to return on these dates, we do hope that most will be able to come and celebrate with us.
The weekend will include baccalaureate services on Saturday, September 5, in the Loma Linda University Church of Seventh-day Adventists. Commencement ceremonies will take place on Sunday, September 6, in the Drayson Center. As plans evolve and finalize in the coming weeks, we will provide information to our graduates in a timely manner
