Schedule of Events

In order to ensure a safe Commencement, the Commencement Committee has reinvented Carthage traditions and incorporated exciting new elements to create a truly unique Commencement experience for the Carthage Class of 2020. We’re excited that our graduates will be able to cross the graduation stage with family and friends congratulating them on their achievements.

Class of 2020 Commencement

Saturday, May 22

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response from graduates and families during the Class of 2021 Commencement weekend, College leadership has decided to give the Class of 2020 the same elevated experience as the Class of 2021. 

10 a.m-2 p.m. (segmented arrival), A. F. Siebert Chapel

Graduates of the Class of 2020 and their five ticketed guests will process through an extended procession line. Each party will have the opportunity to stop at Graduation Stations, walk the red carpet, and interact with immersive digital content on the way to the graduation stage. The entire route will take 25-30 minutes to complete. A livestream will be available for parents and families not in attendance. Livestream the event

Graduates will receive their assigned arrival times via email. Email if you are unsure of your assigned date and time. The procession for graduates and families will begin at the H. F. Johnson Center’s entrance in the South Upper parking lot.

* Schedule subject to change. Graduates will receive the most up-to-date information periodically via email as the date approaches.
