Henderson State spring commencement May 7

Henderson State University will hold commencement ceremonies May 7 to honor spring 2021 graduates. Two events will be held simultaneously in separate locations to follow COVID-19 protocol.

Graduates from the Ellis College of Arts and Sciences will receive their diplomas in the Garrison Center, 1045 McKnight Drive, while School of Business and Teachers College graduates will be honored in the Wells Center gymnasium, 1192 M.H. Russell Drive, in Arkadelphia.

Both events will begin at 9 a.m. Graduates and their guests will remain together throughout the process, and each graduate is limited to nine guests. Tickets will not be issued, but occupancy will be monitored at the door.

Graduates will be assigned specific times to arrive at staggered intervals throughout the day. The schedule will be available at hsu.edu/graduation on April 19.

Graduates and their guests are required to wear a face mask and follow social distancing precautions.

Both ceremonies can be viewed live on Henderson’s YouTube channel. Links will be posted on Henderson social media.
