Commencement 2.0

Posted on May 13, 2008 by Chris Blose

About 200 Mizzou students will be graduating this spring after working to earn their degrees online through MU Extension. They’ve completed their undergraduate and graduate degrees in a nontraditional way that transcends daily class schedules and geography, and they have a commencement ceremony to match.

Extension now offers Mizzou’s first online commencement ceremony. Graduates’ names and degrees are listed; there are speeches from Provost Brian Foster and Mizzou Alumni Association President Titus Blackmon; and friends, family and others can sign a guest book and wish graduates well. Coat and tie are optional for the ceremony, of course, and weather and parking shouldn’t be concerns.
