Graduates will be able to walk across the stage and have their photographs taken, and we are continuing to work with graduates to make the event special. Due to the ongoing pandemic and health and safety guidelines and regulations, we regret that we will be unable to host DePauw Under the Stars or provide on-campus housing (in residence halls or houses). Nearby accommodations can be found at www.depauw.edu/about/campus/visiting/.

Barring unforeseen pandemic-related circumstances, an outdoor ceremony (final location is not yet determined) is planned. Planning is ongoing and more details will be announced via direct emails to members of the Class of 2020 and on this website.

The commencement address for the Class of 2020 will be Sarah Herrlinger '94, head of global accessibility for Apple.

FOR MAY 23, 2021 at 10:00 A.M.

DePauw is working as quickly as possible to finalize details for the Class of 2021 commencement. Barring unforeseen pandemic-related circumstances, an outdoor ceremony is planned (final campus location is not yet determined). Graduates will be able to walk across the stage and have their photographs taken. Unfortunately, the ongoing incidence of COVID-19 will not allow us to host DePauw Under the Stars or provide on-campus housing (in residence halls or houses); please explore nearby accommodations at www.depauw.edu/about/campus/visiting/.  We plan to provide more details to seniors and their families via email and updates on this website, including information about ticketing and guests.

Dr. Keith Kenter '84, a professor and renowned orthopedic surgeon, will address the Class of 2021

Although DePauw will not host DePauw Under the Stars for health and safety reasons, the university will host an outdoor reception from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm on Saturday, May 22 throughout East College lawn, where departments will have designated tables for graduates and families to interact with their faculty.
