The in-person commencement ceremony scheduled for August has been canceled. This was stated in an email from the President of the St. Francis College, Miguel Martinez-Saenz on July 23.
“In order to continue to safeguard the health and well-being of our SFC community, we have come to the difficult decision to cancel the planned in-person Commencement in August,” President Martinez-Saenz said.
Originally planned for the spring, the commencement ceremony was postponed to August 27th, however as the college monitored the COVID-19 situation in New York, evaluating all possible options to safely host the ceremony, the decision was made to cancel the ceremony until further notice.
“What the Class of 2020 endured this year is truly unparalleled. They have handled it with incredible grace and dignity. I’m grateful to all of them,” President Martinez-Saenz said. “They will be invited as honored participants at an upcoming in-person Commencement ceremony that commemorates their achievements, once we’re able to hold one safely.”
