Class of 2021

The College of Wooster is proud of the members of the Class of 2021, and we look forward to finding special ways to celebrate your achievements this spring.

We know you have many questions about the ways that the important traditions of senior year will be celebrated for the class of 2021. Across campus, staff and faculty are at work on these plans, and are collaborating with you to find ways to honor you that are joyful, meaningful and safe for students both on campus and studying remotely, as well as for your families. We look forward to sharing updates on all the senior dates, deadlines, and activities from I.S. Monday to Commencement on this page.

Senior Research Symposium

We are excited to celebrate the hard work you've put in on your I.S. projects during a year that has posed challenges most of us couldn’t have even imagined when you started at Wooster. You all definitely get the award for resilience after having done your entire IS process during a global pandemic! To celebrate those achievements, Senior Research Symposium will be held virtually Friday, April 16, 2021find more information on how to participate here.
