MATTOON — Lake Land College will celebrate with graduates during an in-person commencement ceremony.
The ceremony will take place on Friday, May 13, 2022 at 6 p.m. in the Field House.
“We are excited to gather together and recognize the accomplishments of our graduates in a traditional in-person commencement,” Lake Land College President Josh Bullock said.
This will be the first in-person ceremony the college has held since 2019.
“We know this year’s graduates have been through so much during the past two years,” said Jon Van Dyke, Dean of Admission Services. “Many of them were not able to have a traditional ceremony at their high school. We hope they will take advantage of this opportunity and participate in the ceremony.”
College photographers will capture moments throughout the evening. Photos from the commencement will be available to download at no cost.
The ceremony will be live-streamed via the Internet from the college’s website. In addition to seating in the Field House, overflow seating showing a live stream on a large screen will be available throughout campus. A recording will also be available on YouTube and local cable channels.
The process to sign up for commencement is simple and can be completed online. There is no cost to order a cap and gown or to participate in the ceremony. The first step is to file an intent to graduate in Laker Hub. Admissions and Records will then send the graduate a letter with instructions on how to measure for a cap and gown online.
The deadline to file is Friday, March 18, 2022. The deadline to measure for a cap and gown is Wednesday, March 30, 2022.
