Honoring Our 2020 Graduates

With an increasing number of confirmed cases of the 2019 coronavirus in New York State, and in other parts of the world, Saint Rose is working to reschedule commencement for a later date.

In the meantime, we wanted to honor our hard-working graduates during May, when our commencement was originally planned. Commencement is our favorite event of the year, and we’re not going to let this virus stop us from celebrating our students’ accomplishments.

Please fill out the form below, which asks questions about your Saint Rose experience and future plans. Make sure to include your photo or video! We will share this information right here, where you can view other grads and get to know what’s in store for the Class of 2020 — kind of like a virtual yearbook!

Share Your Story

Meet the Class of 2020!

Congratulations, you made it! We're so proud.
Click on each grad to learn more about their favorite Saint Rose memories and future plans!

Teaching the community various forms of Latin Dance and showing that you are capable of doing anything once you put your mind to it. Never listen to those that tell you “No”. Block the negativity and do what you love to do. Always remember, “Sad” backwards is “Das” and das no good! WWWEEEPPPAAA!

Favorite memory at Saint Rose?
Some of my favorite memories at St. Rose have been going to all of the concerts, performances, and other events over the past four years. I have been very involved in a lot of music groups and clubs on-campus, being the president of ACDA last year and a part of the music ministry for the college mass at St. Vincent’s. I also went to a lot of events hosted by SA, SEB, and LateKnight, whenever I could!

What are your future plans?
My plans for next year, and in the future, involve getting my initial teaching certification for New York State and trying to get a job in elementary general music and/or chorus. I will also most likely have to earn my Master’s degree within the next five years or so, which I’m hoping to get in either special education, elementary ed., or possibly music therapy.

P.S. Good luck to the entire class of 2020! We have all made it so far and deserve this recognition. <3
