To the Class of 2020 and Their Families

April 2, 2020

To the Class of 2020 and their families:

I know you have been anxiously awaiting news about Commencement, and I am pleased to report that we have made the decision to continue with an in-person ceremony, although a bit delayed, and will celebrate Commencement on Sunday, August 2, 2020. In addition, an event to honor seniors will be held on Saturday, August 1. An invitation with further details will be sent to you from the senior committee and Alumni Engagement. All information regarding Commencement is posted on the IWU website and will be updated as needed at

Some important details:

If you have questions, please contact us at or (309) 556-3780.

I know this isn’t the end-of-year scenario you had hoped for, but the extraordinarily resilient Class of 2020 and their experiences with Illinois Wesleyan are, if anything, cherished even more as we've maintained our connections online during these challenging times. I look forward to seeing you at Commencement.  

With best regards,

Georgia Nugent
