Graduation at Northern Arizona University will be a virtual one again this year. More than six-thousand students will be part of the Class of 2021. NAU’s virtual ceremony will be available at 11 a.m. Friday, April 30, though the recording will be available via nau.edu/commencement through the summer. Viewers in the first 24 hours can post shoutouts to friends, family members and fellow graduates on social media using #naugrad to be featured on the commencement feed. Students and their families can view their graduates’ photos on-screen and hear their names read aloud via a link found on NAU’s commencement website. The virtual ceremony will include a message and degree conferral from President Rita Cheng, along with Provost Diane Stearns and Graduate College Dean Maribeth Watwood.
