Watch Converse’s 2020 Virtual Commencement

Celebrate Our Seniors!

We are celebrating our seniors in a new way this year! Meet our 2020 seniors, read about their favorite Converse memories and see what they’ll be doing after May 16, 2020!

Converse held a virtual Baccalaureate service on Friday, May 15 and a virtual Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 16 to celebrate our 2020 graduates. The ceremonies are now available for viewing on our Converse YouTube channel.

*Diplomas, hoods, and honor cords were mailed to graduates starting the week of May 25, 2020.

Due to the steady increases in the number of COVID-19 cases and in the percent of positive tests, we have reevaluated our in-person commencement ceremony planned for August 2020.  Given that the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control has recommended that people not participate in large gatherings, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person Commencement scheduled for August 2020.

We recognize the disappointment that this change may cause. We are working on special celebrations for our 2020 senior class – both undergraduate and graduate – for you to return to campus once we are able to safely resume large gatherings again.
