Recapping Spring 2020 Commencement
The Spring 2020 Commencement may have been all the more special by virtue of the circumstances. Faculty, staff, and, most especially, the students all rallied to contribute their time and energy to create a fantastic graduation ceremony that included live and pre-recorded elements.
This graduating class included the first conferrals of the Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (BA-PSY) and Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Entrepreneurial Leadership degrees (BA-COMEL). Academic deans Lynne Shea and Geoff Burgess made special remarks commemorating the occasion.
Landmark College president Dr. Peter Eden also took a moment to acknowledge four retiring faculty members.

And of course, everyone was shocked and thrilled by the special message from the surprise guest:
