Well, Class of 2020. It might just finally be your time to shine.
After the Class of 2020’s original commencement ceremonies were moved online amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Penn State is finally set to recognize those seniors with a unique celebration weekend of their own. From April 29 to May 1, Class of 2020 graduates are invited back to Penn State’s campus to participate in a weekend full of events to finally commemorate their achievements and accomplishments as students.
The weekend will kick off with Penn State’s annual Movin On’ Festival starting at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, April 29, at the IM Fields. This year, Aminé, Fitz & The Tantrums, The Aces, and Jack Harlow are set to perform.
Penn State will also host two separate undergraduate commencement ceremonies on at 9 a.m. and noon on Saturday, April 30, in the Bryce Jordan Center. The ceremonies, open to graduates who earned degrees from Penn State in the spring or summer of 2020, can attend. Those who already registered can walk the stage and hear their names read, too.
Another ceremony for graduate students will follow at 5:30 p.m. on April 30 in the Bryce Jordan Center.
The fun isn’t limited to just University Park students, though. A specific event for any World Campus or Commonwealth Campus graduates will also take place at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 30, at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park. The open house-esque event will offer appetizers and refreshments, too.
Also on Saturday, free professional graduation photos will be available for alumni from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Lion Shrine, the “We Are” statue, and Old Main. Saturday’s events will wrap up with a “Welcome Home Tailgate” hosted by the Penn State Alumni Association beginning at 6 p.m. in the Hintz Family Alumni Center.
On Sunday, May 1, any Schreyer Honors College alumni planning to attend the weekend’s events will have a chance to ring the gong and celebrate their accomplishments starting at 10 a.m. in Alumni Hall in the HUB.
In addition to the undergraduate and graduate ceremonies hosted throughout the weekend, each academic college will host events throughout the weekend to celebrate their specific graduates. More information about these events can be found here or listed below.

Discounts on cabins, boats, and more give Penn State students a unique chance to enjoy the outdoors without hurting their wallets.
