A message from Father Sicard on June 15, 2021

Dear Members of the Class of 2020,

In January of this year, we surveyed your class for your preferences on returning to Providence for a commencement celebration. The findings from that survey led us to announce plans for a social event during Homecoming 2021.

We have been in regular communication with class representatives and Class of 2020 families. As COVID-19 restrictions lift, allowing larger gatherings, we understand that your preferences for our October celebration may have changed. With that in mind, we would like to announce that Providence College will hold on-campus commencement exercises for the undergraduates, and those who received graduate and School of Continuing Education degrees, at 11 a.m. on Sunday, October 3. Two guests will be permitted for each graduate. In addition, there will be opportunities to connect socially throughout Homecoming Weekend.

We have not stopped thinking about your class and how we can best honor your achievements. In the coming weeks, we will share additional information about plans for your long-awaited recognition and celebration.
