MCKENZIE, Tenn. April 21, 2021 - Bethel University's College of Arts & Sciences, College of Health Sciences and College of Professional Studies commencement ceremonies for fall and spring graduates will be held May 8, 10 a.m. at Wildcat Stadium.

The health and safety of the University community continue to be a top priority, so to help make commencement safe, social distancing and safety guidelines will be in place. These include seating graduates six feet apart, limiting the number of total capacity and social distancing between families in stands.

"Graduation is a celebration of a culmination of commitment, hard work and learning," said Bethel University President Dr. Walter Butler. "Our graduates have persevered, shown resiliency and succeeded against hard times. I am thrilled that we will be able to recognize them and celebrate with them in this accomplishment."

At this time, each graduate will be limited to the number of guests to reduce total capacity. Due to the limited capacity, the ceremony will be livestreamed and available to watch.
