COLUMBUS, Miss. -- Mississippi University for Women has postponed its May graduation, as well as Mag Chain and Nursing Pinning ceremonies in response to the current COVID-19 crisis.

“This decision follows the recommendation from the Institutions of Higher Learning that we plan for alternatives to our traditional May ceremonies in accordance with CDC and Mississippi State Department of Health guidelines,” said W President Nora Miller.

“These ceremonies are meaningful celebrations of our students’ accomplishments. Postponing these events is in the best interests of our graduates and their families. We will joyfully celebrate our graduates when it is safe for us to do so.”

Plans to celebrate graduates will be announced at the appropriate time and when deemed safe following the COVID-19 pandemic national emergency.
