Celebrating the graduating class is a highlight of the academic year. Each year in May, Wofford plans a weekend of events, including a senior picnic, Baccalaureate service, a senior class party and, of course, Commencement. Commencement exercises will be live-streamed. Watch the 2019 Ceremony on YouTube.

Because of COVID-19, Commencement for the class of 2020 has been postponed. The ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 22. Due to summer heat and humidity in South Carolina, it will be held in the Jerry Richardson Indoor Stadium. The event will be streamed online as well.
