The graduating class of 2022 will be the first batch to experience face-to-face graduation after two years of implementing virtual graduation due to COVID-19 restrictions.

According to University President Edgar A. Orden, while the members of the graduating class are preparing to embark on their next journey as post-graduates in a post-pandemic world, the University also ensures the smooth flow of the commencement exercises.

“Finally, after having virtual graduations for almost two years, we will now be able to conduct it in-person, rain or shine,” President Orden said.

He also added that this year’s graduating class “will have the chance to leave CLSU with some sense of normalcy and tradition, a feat which seemed impossible during the lost years of college at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The graduation ceremony will be streamed live via the CLSU Facebook Page.
