Graduates from the Class 2022 are invited to attend Villa Maria College’s in-person Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 21, 2022 at 11 AM.
This year’s exercises will take place on May 21, 2022 inside the College’s auditorium. All students are expected to attend all Commencement-related activities, including rehearsal, the hooding ceremony and liturgy and the formal exercises. Students should plan to attend not only as an active participant, but also in support of their fellow classmates.
Graduates should arrive on campus promptly at 10:30 for line-up and further instruction on the day’s events. Guests may go right to the auditorium to find their seats.
The College’s traditional liturgy and hooding ceremony will precede the exercises. The liturgy and hooding ceremony will take place on May 21 at 9 AM in the Villa Maria Convent Chapel located at 600 Doat Street. Students should arrive in the chapel by 8:30 AM and will be given further instruction upon arrival in the chapel’s lobby. Guests may go immediately to find their seats.
If there are any changes to Erie County’s or New York State’s social gathering policies students will be notified via email as soon as possible.
