Events Questions

Coronavirus FAQ - EVENTS

Are campus events canceled between now and Mar. 21?  
We are making determinations based on social distancing guidelines and looking for possible alternatives for the events currently scheduled on campus. We will keep the campus community informed. 

Is commencement canceled?
Commencement has been postponed until the fall — exact date still to be determined. We will have a "Celebration of Graduates" on May 9 on YouTube featuring a message from Chip, several faculty and the student commencement speaker. It will also feature a slideshow of graduates. More info will be emailed to graduates.

If commencement is later canceled, can students get a refund on their regalia?
Regalia orders placed earlier this year were canceled because of the postponement of commencement. If students would still like their regalia now, it is available for purchase directly through
 the bookstore. Shipping is $5.95 for bachelors and $6.95 for masters. If you just want to purchase just a tassel, you can do so in the bookstore for $7. If you are local, they are open 9 a.m. - 3 p.m., M-F. Or you can call 479-524-7195 or email bookstore@jbu.edu.
