Spring 2020 Commencements at all Minnesota State system colleges and universities, including Lake Superior College, have been canceled in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Per the March 17, 2020 memo sent by Minnesota State Interim Vice Chancellor Bill Maki, posted on www.lsc.edu/coronavirus, all gatherings of more than 10 people are canceled through Spring Semester 2020 which includes LSC’s Commencement, the Nursing Pinning Ceremony, and all other celebrations that would include more than 10 people. We understand this is disappointing news for those of you who have earned the opportunity to participate in Commencement, and we’re deeply disappointed too. It is always an honor to share that moment with you and join you in celebrating your well-earned accomplishment. For that reason, LSC is inviting everyone who would be eligible to participate in Commencement in the Spring of 2020 to join us at the ceremony in the Spring of 2021.

In the meantime, we will send degrees/diplomas in the mail this summer as usual and encourage you to post a picture of yourself with your degree/diploma and tag LSC on our official social media Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and/or use the hashtag #LSCgrad2020 so that we can virtually celebrate with you. Thank you for your understanding and, most importantly, congratulations on becoming a LSC alumni.
