Tributes to the 2020 Degree Recipients
Congratulations to all Rosemont College 2020 Degree Recipients!
On Saturday, May 16th, Rosemont College held Virtual Tributes to the 2020 Degree Recipients via Zoomand shared through Facebook Live.
President Sharon L Hirsh led the Tributes to honor the degree recipients who would have walked for commencement, if it were not for the Covid-19 pandemic. Separate Tributes were held via Zoom for the degree recipients of the Undergraduate College and the School of Graduate and Professional Studies.
Recordings of these Tributes:
- The Tribute for the Undergraduate College held at 2:00 pm.
- The Tribute for the School of Graduate and Professional Studies held at 3:30 pm.
In her remarks, President Hirsh said, “The COVID-19 pandemic has caused so many disruptions to our lives over the last two months, but perhaps one of the most disappointing is that the College cannot celebrate this milestone with our usual very festive and warm Commencement Ceremony. It is my hope – and the hope of everyone in the Rosemont College community – that this afternoon’s Tribute will help to mark this important milestone in your lives.”
Each Tribute included a live greeting from President Sharon Hirsh, the reading of all degree recipient names, and a blessing from Sr. Jeanne Hatch, SHCJ. Read More.
The Tribute was not intended to be a formal Commencement Ceremony, as that will take place on Saturday, May 15th, 2021 and all degree recipients are invited and encouraged to participate at that time. The planned commencement ceremony, originally scheduled for May 16th, 2020, was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
