Class of 2020 Commencement Scheduled September 26

Commencement exercises for the Class of 2020 at Southwest Minnesota State University will be held Saturday, Sept. 26 at 10:00 a.m. in the R/A Facility on campus.  If at that time we are still unable to meet face-to-face the alternate date will be December 19th


“We want to hold a Commencement to celebrate our Class of 2020 members, who were unable to participate in the May 9th event,” said SMSU President Kumara Jayasuriya. “Commencement is the culmination of the educational journey for our students, and we look forward to our 2020 graduates walking across the stage, just as they had expected to earlier.”
