President Kristina Johnson has announced, "We are excited to be preparing for our in-person commencement ceremonies — the first near-normal celebrations of student achievements at Ohio State since the pandemic began. Graduates and their friends and families will be able to enjoy the celebration of the Class of 2020 at 7:30 p.m. on August 7 and the Summer 2021 commencement at 2 p.m. on August 8, with limited health and safety protocols. I can't wait to celebrate with all of our outstanding Buckeye graduates!"
Typically held at the Schottenstein Center, the summer commencement ceremonies will be moved to Ohio Stadium to help ensure a safe and healthy experience. More information on logistics, ticketing and other parameters for 2021 and 2020 graduates will be shared with the community as commencement nears.
