Due to COVID-19, Eastern Connecticut State University’s 130th annual Commencement Exercises were held virtually on May 19, 2020, on You Tube. Prior to the event, seniors were mailed their mortarboard, diploma cover and two copies of the program to enhance their celebration with their families at home.  Congratulations, Class of 2020. You are stronger, more resilient, and have shown great courage in an unprecedented moment in history. Best wishes in the years ahead!

Together While Apart

In other years, Eastern seniors purchase their mortarboard, tassel and robe from the bookstore and proudly walk across the XL Center stage to shake the President's hand and receive their diploma cover. This year, that was not possible. To help students celebrate our "virtual" Commencement with their families, Eastern mailed 1,250 packages to students' homes, with their mortarboard, tassel, diploma cover, and copies of the Commencement Program.

Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.
