Rebel Student-Athletes Earn Degrees at Spring Graduation Ceremony

A total of 47 current and former Ole Miss student-athletes earned their degrees as May 2020 graduates of the University of Mississippi as of Saturday morning.

Despite no traditional commencement ceremony in The Grove and across campus due to the coronavirus pandemic, Ole Miss will hold a live, virtual celebration for graduates, family and friends at noon CT on Saturday. Chancellor Glenn Boyce, Provost Noel Wilkin and others will give remarks as they confer degrees for more than 5,000 graduates.

“The university wanted to make sure that this day of traditional pomp and circumstance did not pass without recognizing the incredible achievements, character and spirit of our class of graduates,” Boyce said. “While we remain committed to hosting an in-person ceremony when it is safe for us to do so, the May 9 event is intended to mark this day as one of significance and celebration in the lives of our students.”

As part of the virtual celebration, students – including December 2019 graduates, and May and August 2020 candidates for graduation – were sent an official cap and tassel, along with other celebratory items.
