Mount Saint Mary College Classes of 2021, 2020 honored at three-part Commencement
At Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, N.Y., an unusual academic year required an unusual Commencement.
In the last three semesters, the Mount community rose to the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic. After a necessary switch to online courses in March of 2020, students saw the return of face-to-face learning in the fall. The Mount community did its best to keep friends, coworkers, and professors safe by adhering to proper safety guidelines.
For graduating seniors, their reward was an in-person Commencement with a reduced, but very enthusiastic, crowd.
The Class of 2021 – which includes more than 500 graduates – was recognized over the course of two ceremonies. On Friday, May 21, Nursing students were honored, and on Saturday, May 22, all other majors walked across the Commencement stage.
But there were also dozens of Class of 2020 Nursing graduates who were recognized on Friday, May 21 as well. And on Sunday, May 23, the other 2020 grads finally enjoyed a live Commencement, making up for the virtual graduation they celebrated last year.
