Congratulations SUNY Broome Class of 2020! As you know, we plan to do a virtual Commencement Ceremony on July 25th at 1:00pm. The link can be found on the SUNY Broome Graduation Website.
In addition to the Virtual Commencement Ceremony on July 25th, we are going to host a Graduation Drive-Through Pickup on campus where you will be able to pick up a special gift bag which will include your diploma cover and some small gifts including confetti to participate in our Confetti Challenge!
Fall 2019, Spring 2020, and Summer 2020 graduates may attend the pickup on the following dates and times (Please note the times have been updated):
- Monday, June 29th, 10:00am – 1:00pm
- Tuesday, June 30th, 3:00pm – 6:00pm
- Wednesday, July 1st, 10:00am – 1:00pm
- If we have inclement weather any day, we will have a rain date of Thursday, July 2nd, 10:00am – 1:00pm (keep an eye on the Graduation Website and our social media for updates).
***Any graduate that attends the graduation gift bag pickup will be entered into a drawing to win $500! Winner will be chosen Thursday, July 2nd***
Although registration isn’t necessary, if you plan to attend the drive-through pickup, please email StudentActivities@sunybroome.edu in order to help us gauge an accurate number.
We would love to see you all participate during this drive-through pickup so that the SUNY Broome Community can congratulate you on all of your accomplishments! Different members of Administration, Faculty, and Staff will be on site throughout the day to wave to you and cheer you on as you collect your gift bag. Although you won’t be permitted to exit your vehicle due to safety and health concerns, we will be snapping fun photos throughout the day and posting them to social media, so decorate your car and get it ready! If you are not able to attend the drive-through pickup, don’t worry, we will mail the diploma cover and small gifts to you with your diploma mid-July.
In order to comply with guidelines regarding COVID-19, any individuals attending the drive-through pickup who (1) display symptoms consistent of COVID-19, (2) have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days, or (3) within the last 14 days were in close or proximate contact of an individual who had symptoms of COVID-19 or tested positive for COVID-19, are not permitted to attend. We also ask that individuals wear masks (unless medically unable to) while receiving their gift bag and do not exit their cars. Please keep in mind that there will be no access to restrooms.
We hope to see you at the drive-through pickup!
If you have any questions, please contact Justine Dadamio, Special Events Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
After much discussion, the decision has been made that the 2020 Commencement Ceremony on July 25th will be a virtual format. With much uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of the SUNY Broome community is our top priority. Administration, faculty, and staff have worked closely with students to come to this decision.
The Graduation Committee has begun planning the virtual ceremony and details will be announced as they become available. Check your SUNY Broome email often for these announcements. Graduates will also be invited to participate in the 2021 Commencement Ceremony.
We thank everyone for their understanding and flexibility during this difficult time. The 2020 Commencement Ceremony will certainly be one that will not be forgotten. We can’t wait to celebrate the Class of 2020!
