To the Stern Undergraduate Class of 2021:
You should have received President Hamilton's email by now, announcing that NYU, like many other universities across the country, will be hosting its All-University Commencement Exercises virtually this May. Similarly, individual School graduation ceremonies cannot go forward in-person as we had originally hoped for this year.
While we won’t be able to host conventional graduation events in NYC, as has been our longstanding and treasured tradition, please save Thursday, May 20, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. (ET) in your calendars to collectively mark the moment virtually as part of Stern’s Undergraduate Class of 2021 Celebration.
As you can imagine, it's disappointing for us to have to make this announcement, but rest assured, we also plan to come together in-person to celebrate when it's safe to do so in the future. We are very much looking forward to that day!
In the meantime and with input from students, we will develop the event details for both May 20 and a future event more fully and inform the Stern community.
