UofM Will Recognize Graduates With Drive-Thru Event and Online Celebration

August 5, 2020 - A total of 697 students will earn degrees and certificates from the University of Memphis Aug. 6-7, including 38 doctorates.

While an in-person ceremony isn’t possible due to the pandemic, a “Touchless Drive-Thru Diploma Cover Distribution & Alumni Swag” event will be held both days from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in the Central Avenue parking lot. The event is sponsored by the Commencement Office and UofM Alumni Association.

During this touchless event, spring and summer graduates will be able to pick up their UofM diploma cover along with fun alumni swag. This event was developed to continue to show how proud the University is of each graduate during these unprecedented times when it isn’t hosting large-scale events.

In addition, 2020 commencement participants will be recognized during an online commencement celebration. The premiere begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 8.
