Northwest Technical College will honor more than 220 college graduates during an in-person Commencement ceremony, May 7.
Coordinated following COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the State of Minnesota and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the ceremony will last about an hour and will be live-streamed on Facebook and Vimeo. The graduates were not required to attend the ceremony and not all graduates will be in attendance.
The event is closed to the public, but each graduate participating in the ceremony could request four guest tickets.
The NTC campus grounds will be open to the public for self-guided tours and visits throughout May 7, but campus buildings remain closed to the public as part of ongoing COVID-19 mitigation efforts. No permits are required in college parking lots on Commencement day.
Commencement will again be available through a live online video stream. The stream will be available at the start of each ceremony, Central time; viewers are encouraged to visit the stream in advance to ensure that necessary plug-ins are present and properly functioning.
The Northwest Technical College class of 2021 will hear from a number of speakers both in-person and virtually including President Faith C. Hensrud, Vice President of Academic Affairs Darrin Strosahl and Jeanne Edevold Larson, executive director at Bemidji’s Northern Dental Access Center.
The ceremony will also feature an address by NTC’s Lorrie Prickett, a nursing and health science broad field graduate from Bemidji.
NTC’s visitors are reminded that the campus is tobacco-free. More information about the college’s tobacco-free policy is available online.
