The two-day celebration known as Slippery Rock University's 2021 Spring Commencement saw the conferring of more 1,700 bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees at Mihalik-Thompson Stadium, April 30-May 1. It was the first time since 2008 that SRU staged graduation ceremonies outdoors, doing so in order to protect the health and safety of attendees due to COVID-19. In years prior to the pandemic, spring commencement was conducted inside Morrow Field House. The events put a wrap on years of work as students crossed the commencement stage, bumped elbows with SRU President Bill Behre and Provost Abbey Zink, and received their diplomas. More photos from the graduate and undergraduate ceremonies are available at the University's photo gallery and digital archive.
