If you’re like me, this is a time to celebrate and be excited! We’ve waited patiently through the cold winter months and now spring has arrived! Just like clockwork, spring arrives every year and with it come new beginnings and new possibilities. For me and my family, spring brings new opportunities to get outside and find adventure in nature.

For those of us at Marian University, spring is also a sign that graduation is quickly approaching. In just a few short weeks the Class of 2021 will walk across the stage at commencement and graduate with a lifetime of possibilities in front of them. These students have worked tirelessly, with significant support from their loved ones, to achieve their dreams. And now is the time for them to experience the renewal and rejuvenation that spring brings as they launch into the opportunities that lie ahead.

We celebrate this journey, and invite you to join us, at the Marian University Commencement Ceremonies. You have played an important role in the development of your student and it would mean the world for them, and to us, to know you experienced commencement right along with them. That is why we are making opportunities available for family and friends to participate both in-person and virtually. Please see below for more details regarding dates, times, and venues.
