ATLANTA, GA — College graduations have been canceled for both The University of Georgia and Georgia Southern University due to the coronavirus. The universities made the announcement Tuesday. UGA said that “actual ceremonies for both undergraduate and graduate commencement will be canceled for May 8, 2020.”

“We realize that the cancellation of many of these activities is extremely disappointing—particularly the cancellation of Spring Commencement on Friday, May 8, 2020.

These decisions are not made lightly, but with the best interests of our campus community and our students’ families and loved ones in mind.”
