A number of NMU academic departments are celebrating their graduates virtually, in lieu of the university's formal commencement, which was postponed by COVID-19. Two examples are the School of Nursing, which will hold an online BSN ceremony on Friday, May 8; and the Department of Earth, Environmental and Geographical Sciences (EEGS), which offered a live-stream ceremony May 1.
Nursing's BSN ceremony is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Friday. It can be viewed on YouTube at the following link: https://bit.ly/2UeD5Ex.
EEGS celebrated 50 seniors majoring in one of its programs who were graduating in May or August. President Fritz Erickson, Provost Kerri Schuiling and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences Robert Winn "attended." A recent alumna also shared an inspirational message. The ceremony was recorded and can be viewed here.
