Spring 2020 Grads: Upload Photo and Message Now for Graduation Website
The University of Arkansas will recognize its spring 2020 graduates online in May with a graduation website featuring graduate profiles, a virtual commencement program and video messages from Chancellor Joe Steinmetz, Provost Jim Coleman and the deans of each academic college and school. While spring commencement ceremonies were canceled due to COVID-19, all 2020 graduates will also have the chance to walk across the stage at December commencement.
All graduates will be featured on the site, but you can also submit a photo and a personalized message of up to 600 words to be displayed as a part of your profile.
The deadline for submitting a photo or message is May 6 at midnight.
Students can upload photos and messages now by visiting the university's Campus Web Data site and logging in with their UARK username and password.
The site will go live around May 6 and will be shared on the university's primary social media accounts.
"We know that this is not what any of us originally planned, but we are committed to celebrating our graduates now and also giving them the opportunity to walk across the stage and be recognized at commencement in December," said Chancellor Steinmetz. "We hope students share the online resource with family and friends now and we'll all look forward to celebrating together, in-person as soon as it's safe to do so."
