At the end of the Spring 2020 semester, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the traditional UH Mānoa commencement ceremony was not held on May 16, 2020.
Nonetheless, on the morning of Friday, May 15, 2020, the School of Architecture ʻohana gathered together for the Virtual Doctorate Project Presentations. It was followed by an afternoon Virtual Commencement Reception, along with family and friends, honoring the Spring 2020 graduating class.
We honor our architecture graduating class for their perseverance and endurance in completing their programs by modified teaching and study methods and we celebrate with each graduate for earning his/her respective degree. We stand proud with you.
All the best to those forging ahead into the workforce and we welcome returnees who have chosen to continue on to graduate school.
