Commencement Speakers

Geneseo will celebrate our graduates by launching an online Senior Send-Off—a multimedia tribute to the Class of 2020. Although current circumstances prevent us from gathering to honor the class in person, we will come together to celebrate their achievements online and offer our heartfelt congratulations and best wishes. Planning for a future in-person commencement will continue.

The Senior Send-Off commemoration site will open on May 16 at 10 a.m., when the first commencement ceremony would have taken place. The site will include brief video messages from the President Denise A. Battles, keynote speaker Leo M. Lambert ’76, SA president Adam Hansen, alum Joseph Carr, and other distinguished guests. In addition, video clips from each academic department will let graduates connect with faculty members in their major.

This online tribute also will include personal messages and congratulations from friends, family, and alumni all over the world.
