Commencement 2021: Watch Hooding here
Princeton University is celebrating the accomplishments of its undergraduate and graduate degree candidates at a series year-end events all streamed on the University homepage.
The virtual Baccalaureate service streamed at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 15. The speaker was Prairie View A&M University President Ruth J. Simmons, who previously served as president of both Brown University and Smith College and as a trustee and administrator at Princeton.
The University’s 274th Commencement began with an academic procession at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, May 16, at the outdoor ceremony at Princeton Stadium. Princeton President Christopher L. Eisgruber presided and addressed the graduates. In parallel with the Commencement ceremony was the #Princeton21 Social Cam on the University’s YouTube channel, featuring social posts from students, friends and families using the #Princeton21 hashtag.
The Graduate School will host a virtual Hooding ceremony to honor and recognize this milestone achievement at 4 p.m. Monday, May 24.
