Celebrating the Class of 2020

This season, we honor the curiosity, creativity and resilience of LMU's Class of 2020 with a week of virtual celebrations. These activities will not replace in-person commencement exercises, which will take place on campus when it is safe to do so.

The Class of 2020 and their families are invited to honor their achievements at a virtual celebration this May. The celebrations include live prayer services and a new website of content to help you mark this milestone.

The prayer service is the only live event this weekend; the celebration website will be available any time to enjoy and share with loved ones.
