Commencement for 2020 Graduates to be Held in October
Events and Lectures

Subject to the state restrictions on crowd size being lifted, Franklin College will host a commencement ceremony at 10:00 a.m., on Sunday, Oct. 11, 2020, in Stewart “Red” Faught Stadium as part of its Homecoming and Alumni Weekend activities. 

The stadium provides adequate space to allow each graduate four guests while maintaining appropriate physical distancing protocols. The ceremony will relocate to Spurlock Gymnasium if inclement weather is expected. In that event, there would be no guests allowed due to inadequate space for appropriate physical distancing. Regardless of the venue, the event will be live-streamed on the website,  

As a reminder, students’ cap and gown orders through Jostens have been rescheduled for an October delivery date at no additional charge.  For specific questions or concerns, please contact Matt Neau, or Jan Schantz,

Graduates are asked to continue to monitor their email for more information regarding guest tickets and other logistical details.
