Spirited Pirates Celebrate Seniors in Style

On May 15, with permission from the Monterey County Public Health Department, we welcomed local seniors and their families back to campus—briefly, and while remaining in their cars—to pick up their caps and gowns, diplomas, and additional keepsakes in advance of our virtual Commencement on May 24. Our residential seniors, who received their graduation gear by mail earlier in the week, could not participate due to shelter-in-place restrictions that remain in effect, but the entire Class of 2020 was on everyone's minds. Every senior's presence was acknowledged with a personalized sign placed around the Douglas circle, and faculty and staff gathered to cheer for all members of the class.
