The trustees, faculty, and staff of Lafayette College are pleased to announce the College will celebrate the Class of 2021 in-person at its 186th Commencement on Sunday, May 30 at 10:30 a.m. We recognize this is an important milestone for our graduates and their families and we also acknowledge the Commencement this Spring will look different in order for us to ensure for the safety and health of our Lafayette and Easton communities. The current plans for Commencement are grounded in this commitment to safety as well as celebrating our graduates.
The following information provides an overview of the Commencement ceremony. Additional information about Commencement as well as other events taking place to celebrate the Class of 2021 can be found at commencement.lafayette.edu. We will continue to update the Commencement site in the days and weeks to come. We recommend you bookmark, review and monitor the information on this site, which serves to provide answers to many questions you may have regarding Commencement and related activities, and to stay informed about our ongoing efforts and planning. In addition to the Commencement site, various College departments will share more detailed information directly with students in the days ahead.
The pandemic has taught us all the need to be flexible and we ask for your patience and understanding should we need to adapt to any changes in federal, state or local guidelines between now and May as safety guidelines continue to evolve. At this time, we share the following information to assist in your Commencement preparation plans:
