Congratulations, Class of 2020!

Dear Faculty and Staff,

We are all being called upon in a special way during this crisis and today we recognize what this means for the Class of 2020. Our hearts have broken along with theirs, thinking about the rites of passage missed or experienced in a different way. The way they have adapted and persevered has inspired us all. We still plan to hold our rescheduled in-person commencement in August as conditions allow, but we did not want to let today pass without acknowledging what would have been a week of celebrating your graduation.

They are our Sesquicentennial Class and will always hold a special place in the history of Loyola University Chicago. Today, our community raises a glass in toast to them and the time that we have spent together. We also toast to their accomplishments and to their future successes. We have no doubt that we will toast again many times as they go forth and set the world on fire!

Together in Loyola,
