Will Commencement still happen if NYS has guidelines in place preventing mass gatherings?
As always, our main priority is the health and safety of our students and their families. The occurrence of all Commencement activities will depend on NYS guidelines and number of COVID-19 cases on campus at the time of the event. Guests who are making travel and hotel arrangements are encouraged to make reservations that are refundable.
