I am so excited to share with you the plans for a virtual Systemwide celebration of all graduates on May 16 at 11:00 a.m. Your UMN Crookston campus faculty and staff are so very proud of you. We look forward to joining friends from across the University of Minnesota System to celebrate your accomplishments.

Following the Systemwide virtual ceremony, enjoy a Crookston campus pre-recorded ceremony, which will include messages from me and your CSA President, Greg Johnson, along with a video prepared especially for you, highlighting 2020 classmates with special messages from faculty and staff.
