Commencement Overview

Message from President Terenzio: It is with a heavy heart that I am announcing the postponement of our 102 Commencement ceremony which was scheduled for May 9, 2020. I fondly look back on the ceremonies that I presided over and seeing our graduates bask in the celebration of them. We all listened to the reading of each name presented to the audience and cheered for the entire class. I would send forth a directive to you to continue to do good works and be good citizens.

Commencement is one of the most joyous times of the year at SUNY Cobleskill. In my video to you, I asked for suggestions as to how we WILL celebrate the 2020 graduating class and I am receiving terrific ideas. No matter how we will host a ceremony, know that your names will be called, your audience will applaud you, your diplomas will be signed and distributed, and I will send you off with a directive.

Now, I need you to buckle down and finish your work with the faculty. We have time to create a celebratory plan, and we will notify you in the beginning of May. Know that you will go down in history as the class who had an extraordinary Commencement filled with Coby spirit and had an unusual handshake from the President.
