A Message for the Senior Class of 2020 from John Donnelly, Dean of Students - May 19, 2020

This video production would be slated for completion on June 12.

However!  We would like to invite graduates and their households to come to BR so graduates may walk up to the Main Building doors to receive their diploma, their honor cords and any other honors earned during the honors program in their cap and gown.  While we will practice social distancing, members of the household may come up to take pictures of this moment with their graduate.  The current plan is between noon and 4:00 p.m. on Friday, May 29th, 2020, the original date planned for graduation.  More details to follow on pick up order/schedule for that time.

While we very much would like to have an in person, face to face graduation ceremony, we need to follow this format for the safety of our students and families.  That being said, if/when and how restrictions are lifted this summer, we will look to have a celebration for students.  This would not be a formal ceremony, but more of an open house and a time of fellowship (and yes, there should be cake too).

Please make sure to share videos via directions on the Google Document you receive, 

Thank you so much, and Go Rats!
