The University of Lynchburg will hold a virtual conferral of degrees on Saturday, May 16, ahead of its in-person, on-campus commencement ceremonies planned for October 30 and 31, 2020.
The virtual event will be delivered via a prerecorded video featuring remarks by Dr. Kenneth R. Garren, president of the University of Lynchburg, followed by U.S. Senator Mark Warner, who will give a short commencement speech. After conferring degrees to undergraduate and graduate candidates, Garren will close the event with an invitation to join him on campus in October for the rescheduled, in-person commencement ceremony.
Ahead of Saturday, there will be a series of Senior Week events hosted by the Senior Class Committee, including the traditional Senior Toast — virtually, of course. Separate registration may be required, so students are asked to check their inboxes for an email from B.J. Keefer, director of student engagement and leadership development, for more information.
