Each student who is eligible to graduate (those eligible for degree conferral in September 2019, February 2020 or June 2020) will have a slide, regardless of whether the student submitted a photo and personal message. Student slides will contain the basic information (name, degree and major) of each graduate and when clicked, their name and Latin honors (if applicable) will be announced.
Students whose degree will be conferred outside of these periods and did not request approval to participate in the virtual ceremony will not be included. If a student was not eligible to participate, but requested and received approval in the last two weeks from the College of Arts and Sciences to participate, then they will be included in the virtual Commencement ceremony.
Each student and their guests will be able to search for their graduate by name or major. Once the slide of the particular graduate is displayed on the screen, guests will be able to click on the slides of individual graduates to hear the names announced and view information submitted by the students, if applicable.
We encourage participants to visit the university’s special #UBClassof2020 site. There, students and their guests can see and contribute social media shoutouts, access tools to share memories and show their UB spirit! Additionally, the university has made several senior traditions virtual this year, which students can also access on the #UBClassof2020 site.
