Graduation and Traditions

Celebrating the Class of 2020 

Congratulations to you all on a successful spring semester. I know we had many challenges laid before us, but we’ve made it to the finish line, and I couldn’t be prouder. You have shown tenacity and spirit, and it makes me proud to call you part of the Warnell family.

To honor you and celebrate your achievement, we have put together a virtual commencement ceremony, complete with student and faculty speakers. Look for it on this page starting at 12:30 p.m. Friday, May 8. 

While we are apart, it does not diminish our connections. We look forward to having you back as alumni, whether it’s a trip back to Athens for UGA’s Commencement ceremony on October 16, or in the future for a tailgate or Warnell Weekend event. Your time in Athens hasn’t come to a close—in fact, it’s just beginning. You are always welcome.

Traditions Old and New

While our spring 2020 semester was one for the record books, it also brought us a wealth of new perspectives. with students studying off campus, the Warnell community looked for other ways to stay connected. Sure, there were (seemingly endless) Zoom meetings, but beyond that, we've created other ways for past, present, and future Warnell alumni to stay connected (and have some fun).
