While nothing could replace coming together physically on May 17, 2020 to celebrate our seniors, there was no shortage of energy expended to make it uniquely great. A one-of-a-kind commencement, glorious in its own way. A point of distinction in the 170 year history of commencements at Beloit College.

On-Campus Ceremony

In May, we were hopeful and excited for a fall commencement ceremony. This hope was contingent on one factor of paramount importance: the safety of the college community and our families. Unfortunately, the latest developments of the pandemic do not allow us to safely proceed with a fall commencement.

Ceremony Materials

The college will mail all respective commencement materials to graduating seniors.

  • Diplomas
  • Honors cords
  • Hoods for top BA/BS students
  • Framed citations for Martha Peterson and Blue Skies award recipients
  • Physical copy of the Commencement Program

Britney Johnson’20

Britney Johnson recognized for academic achievements, dedication to community

An award named for Martha Peterson, Beloit’s 7th college president, has singled out one remarkable graduate each year since 1981.

Parker Blunt’20

Parker Blunt recognized for bringing good cheer to campus life

This year has required flexibility, optimism, and good cheer from all our 2020 graduating seniors. But no Beloit student has exemplified the spirit of the Blue Skies Award more than Parker Blunt. Parker’s charm and energy have made life on campus better for all of us, and we’re proud to honor them with one of Beloit’s most prestigious and unusual awards.
