Graduation is here; Let's Celebrate

By Lexy Towsend, Tuesday Mahrle, ..

Congratulations Spring 2020 graduates!

You put in the time and effort, and it has led to this moment: graduation! While there are no more papers or tests and your diploma will soon be in hand, remember you are a life-long Sun Devil. Being a Sun Devil means so many things, and during this time, it means adaptability. In addition to virtual commencement and convocations, there are so many ways we are celebrating your big accomplishment. Put on your cap and gown, and let’s celebrate virtually!

Your guide to an at-home graduation celebration:

Things to do

  • Ceremonies: Commencement will be held on May 11 and Convocations will be held on May 11 and 12. Both ceremony types will be broadcast on YouTube. All student names will be called. Note: RSVPs are still accepted after April 20. Simply RSVP using the link emailed to your ASU email address.
  • Music: No graduation celebration is complete without music. We’ve got you covered with a Spring 2020 graduation playlist with songs specially curated for graduating Sun Devils. Whether you enjoy a personal jam session with your earbuds or blast it at your home graduation party, “Celebrate good times, c’mon!”
  • Tours: Check out the virtual campus tours (https://tours.asu.edu/tempe/points-of-pride) featuring ASU’s points of pride and traditions. Take a virtual walk down Palm Walk or cruise through the Memorial Union. Here’s a virtual map (https://www.asu.edu/map/interactive/) for an in-depth look at the different campuses.
