Wayne State College Spring 2020 Commencement

Published Friday, May 8th, 2020


While the May 9 ceremonies have been postponed, 578 degrees are being conferred by President Marysz Rames.

While Wayne State is unable to hold the traditional commencement ceremonies for graduate and undergraduate students on May 9 in the college’s historic Willow Bowl amphitheater, the College plans to host a ceremony for graduates later this summer, provided conditions permit the gathering.

To mark the occasion of spring graduation, the College asked graduation candidates to submit images to be used in a celebratory photo gallery. (Note: Not all graduates responded with a photo.)
