Celebrating The Class Of 2020

2020 Drive Through Commencement
OCC's Class of 2020 celebrated commencement with a high-energy Drive Through Diploma Festival.

Onondaga Community College's 57th Commencement Ceremony was its most unique. Limitations due to COVID-19 forced the College to hold the ceremony outside and turn it into a Drive Through Commencement Diploma Festival. Students and their families circled the campus on the loop road before entering the parking lot in front of the SRC Arena where students exited their vehicles, received their degrees, and had their pictures taken. Congratulations to the Class of 2020!

You can watch the recorded livestream of commencement at this link on our Facebook page. The telecast was produced by faculty and alumni from our outstanding Broadcast Media Communications degree program.
