Although extraordinary circumstances prevent us from gathering in person this year for our 55th Commencement ceremony, that will not preclude the rightful recognition of your accomplishments as members of the graduating Class of 2020.
CCRI will hold a Virtual Commencement on Friday, May 29. In the coming weeks, you will receive a special gift from the CCRI Foundation and CCRI Alumni Association to help celebrate this milestone. In this box will be small, but tangible, reminders of your accomplishment and lifelong connection to the CCRI community.
You will also receive instructions via email on how to participate in this year's Virtual Commencement and build a custom slide that will be included in a special slideshow honoring every member of the Class of 2020. If you do not receive either your gift or instructions on how to participate in this year's ceremony, please email email@example.com.
As we approach May 29, we encourage you to share photos and short videos from your time at CCRI that we will use to create a special video that will be included in the virtual commencement. To help you celebrate your CCRI spirit, we've uploaded a series of graphics for use on social media or whichever platform you choose. Use them, share them and display them with pride. You've earned it!
Lastly, remember to mark your calendars for next May. Although we will do everything we can to make your Virtual Commencement a special and memorable event, we know it cannot replace coming together with our families and friends to celebrate, so we are inviting you to next year's 56th Commencement to continue celebrating alongside the Class of 2021.
We are proud of everything you have accomplished! We also know many of you will have questions leading up to May 29, so visit our FAQs page for more information on this year's Virtual Commencement.
