How will the Virtual Ceremony work?
On August 15, 2020, at 2 p.m., the Virtual Commencement Ceremony will launch with a link on this website. The ceremony will premiere on YouTube with an interactive chat. Also, you will be able to watch it at any time after 2 p.m. You will be able to watch a message from President Fuch’s, the Dean, and the recognition of graduates.
Each graduate will have the opportunity to be recognized with a downloadable official slide that can be customized with your photo and a personal message. You will also have the option to record a ten-second video/StageClip using a custom HWOCE graduation Snapchat filter.
Can I download the videos and graduation slide and share it with my family and social media?
Yes! Once downloaded, you will be able to keep the videos and share them with your loved ones.
Will the virtual ceremony replace the in-person ceremony?
The virtual celebration replaces the in-person ceremonies scheduled for the weekend of August 15th (more information is available at https://commencement.ufl.edu).
What is the best way to view and engage with the virtual celebration?
The best way to watch the virtual celebration is on a desktop computer or television that is capable of viewing YouTube. We encourage you to post with the hashtags #WerthTheWait and #UFgrad on your public social media accounts. Friends, family, and graduates are encouraged to participate and get into the action.
