K-State has moved commencement ceremonies for 2020 spring, summer and fall graduates who attended the Manhattan campus to the weekend of Nov. 20.

The commencement ceremonies for the Manhattan campus will take place Friday, Nov. 20 through Sunday, Nov. 22 in Bramlage Coliseum. Ceremonies for the Polytechnic Campus in Salina will remain on Nov. 20.

These ceremonies were originally scheduled for Monday, Nov. 23 and Tuesday, Nov. 24 in Bramlage Coliseum. However, according to Chuck Taber, K-State provost and executive vice president, a change in availability at the commencement venue prompted the date change.

Taber says in a letter that the earlier dates are more desirable because the decreased need for students to travel reduces the health risks of those planning to attend the ceremonies. He also notes that having a weekend ceremony makes it easier for families to travel to the area.

The in-person commencement ceremonies for the spring 2020 graduates were canceled in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
