Commencement postponed indefinitely

Commencement and degree celebrations have been postponed indefinitely. The hope is to either reschedule at a later date, and/or to find a creative way to celebrate students online.

An online Celebration of 2020 Mason Graduates will begin at 2 p.m. Friday May 22nd.  It will feature remarks from Anne Holton and a performance by Doc Nix and the Green Machine along with other special guests.  You can watch the celebration directly at GMU-TV.
