Of those graduating, three earned master’s degrees in anatomy. The Class of 2020 is a generation prepared to serve out the AB mission as well-rounded, responsible citizens contributing greatly to society. Among these seniors are graduates from a variety of disciplines, representing eight countries and 19 states.

The ceremony will feature a slide show of submitted candid photos from the Class of 2020, greetings from President Barry and remarks by Mary Griffith, student government president, and Alex Shaffer, senior class president. Dr. Joan Propst ’79, provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, will read the names of the graduates.
