Thousands gather in-person and virtually for CSU-Globals’ 2019 Commencement Ceremony
On June 1st, nearly 1,500 graduating students, and their friends and families from around the world, took part in Colorado State University-Global (CSU-Global) 2019 Commencement Ceremony. The in-person event took place at the 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, CO, and was live-streamed on the CSU-Global website. Simultaneously, over 375 students gathered through a customized virtual ceremony that was designed to give a real-life and interactive experience for its attendees.
Similar to how CSU-Global provides online certificates and degrees which allow students to continue their education and achieve their goals from wherever they might live, the virtual ceremony allowed graduates to connect, engage, and celebrate online from wherever they may be in the world. Virtual graduates and their guests enjoyed the same speakers and ceremony as the graduates that walked across the stage, while enjoying a tailored program with their names and awards.
In Broomfield, Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, President of Colorado State University-Global, conferred degrees to graduates from far away as Singapore and Japan. In total, CSU-Global awarded degrees for 2,093 undergraduates and 1,328 graduate students in the Class of 2019. Additionally, CSU-Global also awarded 52 undergraduate certificates and 77 graduate certificates.
Graduates were able to submit thank you videos to their friends and family and were able to share their congratulations through live social media sessions on Facebook and Twitter. For a full library of the 2019 graduate thank you videos, visit csuglobal.edu/gratitude2019.
After the ceremony, the graduates were invited to attend their first alumni event at the 1STBANK Center. Several hundred graduates and their families took advantage of the opportunity to celebrate their success, share smiles with their family and friends, and network with other alumni.
CSU-Global would like to thank our Keynote Speaker, Reggie Rivers and Student Speaker, Krista Meulengracht for participating in the ceremony and sharing their valuable insight with the graduates. A recording of the commencement ceremony, as well as pictures from the event, will be available shortly.
Congratulations graduating Class of 2019.
