a sea of green: the class of 2021 orientation photo on Severance Hill

Wellesley will celebrate the class of 2021 on Friday, June 4, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. EDT.

Wellesley’s 143rd Commencement will be a hybrid ceremony that includes an in-person gathering for on-campus seniors and a virtual gathering for remote seniors, families, and friends not on campus. Recently released state guidance for graduations and commencements will permit us to bring together our on-campus seniors for a physically distanced, in-person gathering. Our remote seniors and all families and friends will attend the event virtually. Read President Johnson’s March 26 letter to the seniors and their families.



Join us virtually as we celebrate the Class of 2021!
