Commencement 2020

Virtual Celebration

Congratulations, graduates! Our faculty, staff, and students are pleased to welcome you to this virtual celebration of the 129th graduating class of Buena Vista University.

This virtual Commencement celebration includes many of the same components as our traditional ceremony, with messages from the Interim President, student speaker—and most importantly, the recognition of individual graduates.

This celebration represents the culmination of many years of hard work. During the academic year, students faced new challenges as a global pandemic changed our lives. While far from ideal, you kept soaring academically, while contributing to your communities in many ways.
