From President Frank H. Wu:
It is my pleasure to invite you to celebrate Queens College’s 97th commencement at a virtual ceremony on Thursday, June 3 at 9 am. I also invite you to join me in honoring our students for their outstanding academic achievement at the virtual Baccalaureate ceremony on Tuesday, June 1 at 7 pm.
Regrettably, in-person gatherings of this magnitude are not permissible this spring due to the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on our communities. This does not diminish the outstanding accomplishments of each graduate. Their achievements will be celebrated, albeit in a different manner than to which we are accustomed.
It is my sincere hope that you will join me and participate in both of these important events. We have much to be proud of in our Queens College Class of 2021.
If you have questions regarding the upcoming commencement season, please contact Sylvia Hernandez, Director of the Office of Campus Events and Commencement, at email@example.com.
