As you know, Buffalo State College made the difficult decision earlier this semester to postpone its spring 2020 Commencement ceremonies because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although it is premature to select a new date at this time, the college is strongly committed to rescheduling Commencement and celebrating the accomplishments of our spring 2020 graduates in person when it is safe to gather in large groups again.
In the meantime, we are calling on Bengals far and wide to join us this month in celebrating the Class of 2020 online and through social media. Whether you are a family member of a spring graduate, a classmate, faculty or staff member, an alum, or a graduate yourself, we are asking you to share your photos, congratulatory messages, and words of encouragement with our graduates by using the hashtag #BuffStateGrads on Instagram and Twitter.
All submissions will be organized and collected through an online Grad Wall. If you don’t have a social media account but would still like to offer a supportive message to the Class of 2020, you can submit your well wishes online and those messages will also be shared on the Grad Wall.
While this unprecedented time has forced us apart physically, let’s show the Class of 2020 that Bengal Nation is stronger and more connected than ever by celebrating and congratulating our amazing #BuffStateGrads!
