Adelphi announces graduation plans, includes in-person ‘grad walk’
Adelphi University has announced a hybrid plan combining an in-person “grad walk” experience with virtual versions of a traditional commencement ceremony for the classes of 2020 and 2021.
"Adelphi University's Commencement Committee and Executive Leadership are looking forward to providing our 2020 and 2021 graduates a special experience to commemorate their milestone achievement in such a unique year,” said Kaitlyn Woods, senior associate director of Special Events and Engagement at Adelphi. 
The Adelphi ‘grad walk’ will be an opportunity for graduates to have their moment walking across the stage.
Officials say although it is not an official ceremony, students can invite two guests to cheer them on, capture the moment in photos and video, and experience the occasion in a meaningful way.
The ‘grad walk’ will be by appointment from April 26 to April 29 during Senior Week and after finals beginning May 21 in the Ruth S. Harley University Center’s Thomas Dixon Lovely Ballroom.
The university says health and safety protocols will be observed, including completion of health screening, social distancing, and mask-wearing, except the graduate during photography onstage.
In addition, Adelphi will conduct virtual commencement ceremonies by school or college on Monday, May 24, for the Class of 2021 and Tuesday, May 25, for the Class of 2020.
The virtual events will serve as the ceremony that formally recognizes each graduate and confers their degree. Recordings will be posted online for families and the community to view and share.
Adelphi’s campus also will be open to graduates and their families who wish to take photos and videos.
