SUNY Cobleskill holds Grad Walk for Class of 2021

Graduates from SUNY Cobleskill’s Class of 2021 crossed the stage for their “Grad Walk” as they received their diplomas. SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras was in attendance and handed out our first diploma.

The hybrid Commencement reflects SUNY Cobleskill’s commitment to in-person, applied, and experiential learning. The College offered more than 40 percent of its classes in-person this semester, conducting more than 23,000 COVID-19 tests and maintaining an on-campus positivity percentage well below county and regional figures.

“It has been incredible to see, up close, the resiliency of these graduating classes. They have been through the most adverse learning conditions that you can ask of a student, and they have never lost the enthusiasm and determined spirit it takes to earn their degree,” said Dr. Marion Terenzio, president of SUNY Cobleskill. “As we approach these events, we continue to use the science of pool testing, social distancing, and mask-wearing to guide us, with an added focus of providing information about vaccinations and their importance in our efforts to keep our community safe.” 

This Grad Walk was attended in-person by faculty and staff and live-streamed for family and friends.
