Go Big Grad: A Graduation Celebration
Out of an abundance of caution and as we did in May, we will not be conducting an in-person commencement ceremony in August. We will again confer degrees in a virtual celebration and all graduates will receive gift boxes with a complimentary cap and tassel along with Husker-themed souvenirs. All August 2020 graduates will be invited to attend a future in-person commencement.
On August 15, the University will host the “Go Big Grad: A Husker Graduation Celebration” at 9:00 a.m. CDT that will be streamed here on this website. Graduates and their families are encouraged to view the online celebration. Although we will not be in-person, we hope you can join in the celebration and hear from guest speaker Dr. Marilyn Moore, retired associate superintendent of Lincoln Public Schools and past president of Bryan College of Health Sciences, as well as other special guests.. At the end of the celebration, Chancellor Green will confer degrees with a turning of the tassel moment for graduates.
As you prepare for the big day, we've put together tips and resources to help you celebrate.
- Host an online watch party to virtually connect.
- Make your viewing experience special. Watch the stream with your friends and family!
- A Go Big Grad box containing your cap and tassel will be mailed to help you celebrate!
- You will have the opportunity to personalize a graduation slide and share online so your family and friends can join in the celebration. Details coming soon.
