Commencement has a very special and symbolic significance. By definition, it means initiation, inception, or a time when something begins, and for the Millikin University graduating Class of 2021, it meant taking the next step.
"It's a community that is always tight-knit but always seemingly expanding."
One of the most challenging and unique academic years at Millikin University is coming to a close. Millikin and other institutions of higher learning were compelled to change almost everything they do because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and now the spring 2021 semester has wrapped up and commencement is on the horizon.
