Keuka College returning to pre-pandemic commencement festivities

  • Staff Report 

Keuka College is preparing to host its 114th Commencement ceremony in a return to pre-pandemic festivities. The college has scheduled a single event to honor the graduating class on Saturday, May 20, at 10 a.m. in front of the esteemed Norton Chapel.


Last year, the college opted for two separate ceremonies due to ongoing public health concerns. In 2021, the commencement was split into six smaller, socially distanced events to ensure safety for all attendees.

College President Amy Storey expressed her satisfaction with the decision to hold a unified ceremony this year. “The Class of 2023 has experienced many challenges together, and they deserve the opportunity to celebrate as one,” she said.

In addition to an address from President Storey, a student speaker will share their thoughts during the ceremony. Family members and friends are welcome to attend without the need for tickets or registration. Seating on the chapel lawn will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
