The Unstoppable Graduation Celebration

 

TOMORROW -Thursday, June 25th, 2020.

 

Arrive any time after 3 pm and before 7 pm.  Please enter at the 97th Street Entrance (by the Library) and park in the West Parking Lot. The Graduate is the only one allowed to walk through the event line. Family/friends should stay in their cars. The drive-through is for those students who have a group of family/friends members who want to be in the car for the stations. The graduate will have to jump out for the photo (members of the family need to stay in the car). The whole process should be for the graduate and should only take a few minutes but if there is a line up then it could be longer.

 

There will be three stations:

 

1.      Gift pick up station.

2.      Selfie Station for a selfie picture with the GRAD sign.

3.      Professional Photo Station.

 

The Graduate will then proceed back to the West Parking Lot.

 

To attend the UNSTOPPABLE CELEBRATION, we ask that you:

-wear a face mask,

-follow social distancing guidelines by staying 6 feet apart,

-do not congregate with individuals outside of your own household, and

-do not join the celebration if you are ill.

 

 

Please remember this is the small North Seattle College's celebration. You can walk in next year's larger T-Mobile Stadium Commencement in June of 2021.

 

The Seattle Colleges District will also celebrate by offering a Commencement Box (available later this August), a celebration video, a mural to honor graduates and a website to post and honor graduates and their families. Please see our website.

 

Say Congratulations online!

 

Share your virtual congratulations on the Class of 2020 Kudoboard. Share a note of encouragement and congratulations, a photo, or post a video message on the kudoboard for the North Seattle College Class of 2020. Graduates, you can post too!
