Dear Parents of 2021 Graduates,

We are grateful to God for giving us the opportunity to include family and friends at our 2021 Commencement ceremony, even though it was (really) cold and wet! To those of you who were able to join us in person, thank you for scrambling to come to campus on such short notice.

Because of the poor weather, the program had to be shortened, but we wanted to share the student testimonials from Maggie Akinleye and Joshua Thomas, and a few final words of exhortation from President Ryken, in this video which was sent to the Class of 2021 last week.

Congratulations on your student’s remarkable accomplishment of completing their Wheaton education during an extremely challenging time.
