2021 Commencement

Congratulations Class of 2021!  You did it!

On behalf of CEO Dresdner, faculty and staff we commend you on rising to the occasion and accomplishing your goals despite the challenges of this past year.

We enjoyed coming together to have you walk across the stage and celebrate your achievements while wearing your gap and gown.  

A video of the full commencement ceremony including commencement speakers and the graduates walking will be posted to this page in approximately two weeks.  A link will also be sent to you in your college email.

Job well done!  It's time to celebrate!
