258 Hurricanes make history in GSW’s first-ever Virtual Graduation Ceremony

GSW held its Spring 2020 Graduation Ceremony online Friday, May 15, 2020 celebrating 258 graduating Hurricanes who made history by participating in GSW's first-ever virtual graduation ceremony. Traditional commencement activities, originally scheduled for the same day on campus, were cancelled due to the COVID-19 restrictions that forced universities across the country to either cancel or postpone all large gatherings.

"These graduates are part of a graduating class like no other," noted GSW President Neal Weaver, Ph.D. "Whether on stage or online, their hard work deserves to be recognized. May 15 was their special day, and we made sure it was still going to be their special day. We know this is not how they envisioned completing their college journey, but I am amazed at their perseverance and determination through it all."

During the virtual ceremony, President Weaver and Provost Suzanne Smith, Ph.D., shared brief remarks and words of encouragement, conferred undergraduate and graduate degrees, and signaled the turning of the tassels.
