*After the broadcast is over, May graduates will be able to access and share your submitted video message. We encourage you to join the excitement around Mountaineer Graduation Day and post your personal celebrations.

Please note that the Class of May 2020 is 4,500 strong and that number precludes the individual reading of names and viewing of video clips during the broadcast. We encourage you to plan to return to campus in December for a special in person experience and an opportunity for us to celebrate with you and your families.
