“Go Big Grad” Offers Unique Celebration for Graduates

John Cook to Deliver “Dream Big” Address
“Go Big Grad” Offers Unique Celebration for Graduates
“Go Big Grad: A Husker Graduation Celebration” recognizes the accomplishments of May 2020 graduates in a unique way due to the COVID-19 environment.

Students graduating from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in May 2020 receive a unique celebration due to COVID-19 restrictions. Though traditionally a time for family and friends from around the world to join together in Lincoln, this semester a virtual celebration held May 9 from 9-9:30 a.m. concludes the academic career of many students.

“Go Big Grad: A Husker Graduation Celebration” streams on the university’s commencement website. All undergraduate, master’s and doctoral students from the university can view the celebration along with family, friends and the public with no registration required. NET, Nebraska’s PBS and NPR stations, also plans to broadcast the event.

Graduates received a complimentary mortarboard prior to the event and can turn their tassels together as part of the online celebration. The items were part of a Go Big Grad: May 2020 Celebration Box sent to each graduate.

"A big thank you to the university for finding a way to make graduation week special, even during quarantine. Being at home every day, mail delivery is a highlight of my day, and this delivery shows how special it is to graduate as a Husker," said Taylor Berry, a Muscatine, Iowa, native graduating with her Master of Arts in Business with a Specialization in Intercollegiate Athletics Administration.

The proceedings also include a “Dream Big” address from John Cook, head coach of Nebraska volleyball, as well as Chancellor Ronnie Green conferring degrees to students.

“This is one of my favorite times of the year,” said Green. “I look forward to celebrating with our Husker graduates, their families and loved ones from all over the world.”

Aaron Wang, graduating with a degree in actuarial science, related how the online celebration facilitates his grandmother in China to participate in the festivities.

“It’s awesome Nebraska is allowing this online version of graduation,” said Wang. “My grandma was going to fly in from China, but she didn’t get her visa approved so she wasn’t going to make it. Now she can tune in online and see the whole unique process.”

The College of Business encourages students to use social media to post photos and videos of home celebrations using the hashtag #NUBiz. Graduates can also participate by creating a digital slide with a personal message to share with others in Husker Nation.

Prior to commencement the College of Business distributed an electronic CoB Graduation Celebration Kit for graduation parties. The kit included customized invites, a video message from Dean Kathy Farrell, Husker Hired graphics for social media, customizable invites, branded decorations, fun graduation props and an opportunity to claim a free Nebraska Business May 2020 Graduate T-shirt.

Students who completed the Diploma Distribution form in their MyRED account will receive their diplomas in the mail after May 9. In addition, all May 2020 graduates can return to campus for a future Commencement ceremony.
