Dear Campus Community:

Please join us on May 9 at 11:00 a.m. for a Virtual Commencement Celebration. This virtual celebration allows us to recognize the hard work of our May graduates at the culmination of finals week. We also have a number of things to showcase our May graduates, in addition to the expanded December Commencement. Leading up to our Virtual Commencement Celebration, please keep an eye out on social media as these May graduates share their favorite Norse moments and memories. The Virtual Commencement will last approximately one hour.

To join us for the Virtual Commencement Celebration, visit our commencement website where there will be a link to join the virtual celebration. We will also honor our Senior Award Winners during the virtual event. These outstanding graduates are

  • Bereket Bekele recipient of the Regents Award;
  • Hannah Edelen recipient of the Paul J. Sipes Award;
  • Justin Haubner recipient of the Excelsior Award;
  • Jarett Lopez recipient of the NKU Foundation Student Leadership Award;
  • Adja Ndoye recipient of the President's Award;
  • Sierra Newton recipient of the University Service Award; and
  • Alexander Rosen recipient of the Faculty Senate Award.

Congratulations to these students and all of our May graduates. Reaching this milestone despite all the challenges of this semester is quite an accomplishment. With all the changes that have happened, they have persevered and set a great example for their peers.

I hope you will join us to honor our graduates. Once again, thank you for your support of them, and each other, as we navigate COVID-19. Be safe, well and healthy.
