Reschedule Butler University’s Spring 2020 Commencement Ceremony

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


As Butler students, we have each worked extremely hard to get to Hinkle Fieldhouse, walk across that stage and receive our diploma. Countless hours have gone into our Butler education, including those of happiness, struggles, laughs and possibly tears. Each step of the way, though, the Butler community has likely helped you through in some way. Butler is a family, and as such I’d imagine that many of us want to end our time here as a family. With the cancellation of our spring 2020 commencement ceremony due to the corona virus, we will not be able to share that sense of comradery we’ve all dreamt of since starting at Butler. While it is understandable to not have this ceremony in early May, the ceremony could likely be held in June, July or August without the same health risks. This rescheduled time may not work for everyone, but it would give the majority of our class the closure we seek at the end of our incredible journey at Butler. Please sign this in the hope of bringing our family together one last time!
