Graduation and Traditions

Celebrating the Class of 2020 

These past two semesters haven't been easy, but that just makes your graduation all the more special. Congratulations to all our graduates of the Class of 2020. 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 a video made especially for our fall graduates. 

While we are apart, it does not diminish our connections. We look forward to having you back as alumni for a tailgate, Warnell Weekend event, or just a visit during the year. 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).
