Madison Perry from Greenwood will graduate with a bachelor of science degree from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS). Majoring in Animal Ecology, Perry will join a network of 46,000 CALS alumni sharing their talents and making a difference around the world.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis and the university’s commitment to prioritize health and safety, spring commencement has moved to a virtual format. While graduation may look a little different in this format, there are still opportunities for students to celebrate their achievement with their family, friends and supporters.

On May 8, 2020 the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences will host a virtual convocation at 9:00 a.m CST. This event provides individual recognition for graduating seniors and will feature a series of videos hosted on the college Facebook page or at where the virtual celebration will be archived for future viewing.
