Dear Class of 2020,

I am so proud of the hard work you have put into earning your degrees. Although you will not be joining us in person for commencement this year, your achievements are still recognized and your family and loved ones should be so pleased with all that you have accomplished.

To allow for appropriate physical distancing and in accordance with public health guidelines, all ceremonies will take place outdoors at Hard Rock Stadium and will be livestreamed for you and your friends and family members to enjoy.

Below are additional details about your ceremony so that you know when to tune in.

Be well and go ’Canes,
