W&L Celebrates the Class of 2020 The official Commencement ceremony for the undergraduate and law Classes of 2020 will take place on Saturday, Sept. 11, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on campus.
Washington and Lee University is pleased to announce the official Commencement ceremony for the undergraduate and law Classes of 2020 will take place Saturday, Sept. 11, beginning at 10:30 a.m. on campus on the Front Lawn.
The belated celebration comes more than a year after the in-person Commencement planned for the Class of 2020 was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Members of the W&L community look forward to welcoming back both law and undergraduate classes for a joyful occasion as the Class of 2020 unites as alumni on campus.
A lunch will follow the graduation ceremony at 11:30 a.m. on Cannan Green. Later that night, the classes will have separate parties with dinner and music at 6 p.m., and the festivities will conclude with fireworks after dark.
The date and details of the celebrations were planned in part following input from a university committee featuring representatives from the Classes of 2020.
In addition to the Commencement ceremony, a commemoration of the 20th anniversary of 9/11 will take place at 8:46 a.m. on Stemmons Plaza near Huntley Hall for those who wish to attend.
