Lansing Community College will host a virtual commencement this month in place of an in-person ceremony.
School officials cite health concerns amid the coronavirus pandemic in cancelling the in-person event for the second year in a row.
Students who earned an associate degree or a certificate from Summer and Fall 2020, and those who are approved for an associate degree or certificate for Spring 2021, may participate in the virtual commencement ceremony.
The ceremony will take place at 5:30 pm Thursday, May 13th, and will be streamed on LCC’s commencement website, Facebook, and will also air on LCC’s radio station, WLNZ.
Along with the virtual ceremony, the school has set up photo backdrops in various locations across LCC's campus to allow graduates and their guests to take pictures.
The backdrops will be up during commencement week, and graduates are welcome to come onto campus at their convenience.
All graduates will be mailed a copy of the commencement program as a keepsake.
