Nearly 400 Graduates in Class of 2020 Earn Degrees

In light of the social distancing requirements put in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Avila University’s 103rd graduating class faced unprecedented obstacles in the final months of their college career. In spite of these challenges, the nearly 400 members of Avila’s Class of 2020 successfully earned and received their degrees this past week.

With 19 states and six international countries represented in the Class of 2020, the pandemic forced students to quickly reorient themselves physically and mentally in the middle of their final semester. However, students and their professors adjusted quickly, ensuring the former successfully completed the requirements of their degrees. Local graduates could pick up their cap, gowns and diploma covers on campus beginning Friday, May 8, and the University sent them simultaneously to non-local graduates.

“I am proud of the Class of 2020—not only for their academic achievements, athletic feats and community service—but also for their dedication in these past few months while weathering unprecedented worries and concerns,” Avila President Ronald A. Slepitza said. “I know our students miss seeing and being with their friends, and I know there are many moments that take place on the last days of campus that are lost. Those losses are sad, but I look forward to when we can come together to celebrate this class’ very special achievement.”

The Class of 2020 will be invited to walk across the stage with their classmates during next May's commencement exercises. The University will also recognize the Class of 2020 during a special reception during Homecoming weekend this October.

A total of 396 graduates received Master’s and baccalaureate degrees from the Schools of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, Business, Education, Professional Studies, Nursing, Science and Health, and Visual and Communication Arts. The University bestowed 279 baccalaureate degrees and 117 Master’s degrees.
