​Last week's announcement that traditional in-person commencement ceremonies could not be held this Spring elicited a whole range of reactions - deep disappointment, sadness, empathy, understanding. One sentiment was universal: the hard work, the challenges met, the joy of achievement are worthy of celebration. And, celebrate we will. We will do so heartily, sincerely, joyously and as a community.
