Loyola to confer more than 1,400 degrees on the Class of 2020
| By Molly Robey
Rev. Brian F. Linnane, S.J., president of Loyola University Maryland, will confer the degrees of more than 1,400 undergraduate and graduate students at a ceremony at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 16, 2020.
The live conferral ceremony will be livestreamed from Loyola’s Alumni Memorial Chapel.
“This is not a substitution for their actual Commencement, but these students have earned their bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees, which is an extraordinary accomplishment,” Fr. Linnane said. “We are honored to call them Loyola University Maryland alumni and look forward to celebrating this achievement with them in the future.”
Loyola University Maryland continues to plan toward an in-person Commencement ceremony for its graduates. Details are still coming together for that event.
The University created a Class of 2020 website to celebrate graduating seniors and showcase a few virtual events leading up to the conferral of the degrees on Saturday.
