Congratulations, Class of 2020
Today is the beginning of weeklong festivities that celebrate you, the Class of 2020. Please note that as we honor this joyous milestone, our virtual celebrations do not replace in-person Commencement Exercises, which will be scheduled in-person when it is safe to do so. You deserve much more than we can provide online, so we will cheer you on much more when we gather together on the bluff. For now, please join us in applauding the extraordinary Class of 2020.

Though we cannot be together in person, LMU commends these inspiring students and their exemplary record of service and academics. Please join Provost Poon in recognizing the winners of the university's top academic awards. We are grateful to these students for the legacy they leave behind as scholars and as leaders.
