EFSC Spring 2020 Graduates: We're Celebrating You This Thursday

May 11, 2020 - Eastern Florida State College's special Virtual Commencement Ceremony, held online at 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 14, will include the addition of a drive-up celebration opportunity that day on EFSC's Melbourne Campus.

The virtual ceremony will be posted on the College’s website at easternflorida.edu/go/efscgrad, featured on EFSC social media platforms, plus air on WEFS-TV at 11 a.m.

Graduation candidates also can visit the King Center for the Performing Arts parking lot on the Melbourne Campus from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 14, where they can:

• Take photos in front of two special photo opportunity areas with large banners: Those attending must take their own commemorative photos, and there may be no more than 10 people gathered for a picture.

• Pick up a cover suitable for storing their EFSC diploma: Diplomas will be mailed four to six weeks after graduation to all Spring 2020 graduates who meet requirements and do not have outstanding financial obligations.

• Edited May 14, 1 PM: The limited supply of 250 congratulatory yard signs were distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis, with the supply depleted as of 1 PM. There are plenty of diploma covers to meet the demand.

The Melbourne Campus is located at 3865 N. Wickham Road. Please enter the campus from Post Road by the Tennis Complex and follow the signs. Security officers will be present to provide guidance. Proper social distancing will be in place for graduates waiting in line to receive items.

EFSC bookstore staff will be on site to sell a limited number of cap, gown and tassel bundles, while supplies last, with credit cards as the method of payment.

Graduates and their families are asked to use #EFSCGrad in social media posts to be included in our special social media wall and should visit easternflorida.edu/go/efscgrad for a collection of social media graphics specially designed to assist with virtual celebrations.

On Sunday, May 17 at noon, WEFS-TV will replay the ceremony , which will include video remarks from college President Dr. Jim Richey, faculty members and students, with the names of graduates also featured.
