SAU Cancels In-Person Commencement


Due to the ongoing pandemic, Saint Ambrose University in Davenport will not hold its usual spring commencement ceremony on May 9th. Instead, some sort of virtual event is being considered, with a possible campus celebration at a later date. 

All members of the spring 2020 graduating class will also have the opportunity to participate in the Winter Commencement ceremonies in December, or in the Spring 2021 Commencement ceremonies.

Saint Ambrose is talking with students, faculty, staff, and various University stakeholders to create an alternate schedule of commencement-related events and will announce those plans in the coming days. 
Diplomas will be mailed to students.

After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
