Wheeling University announces plans to host virtual commencement ceremony and hooding

Wheeling University will host a virtual Commencement Ceremony and Hooding on Sunday, December 13 to celebrate the 2020 Doctor of Physical Therapy graduates.

Wheeling University officials said the event will be an online version of the university’s traditional ceremony, as the coronavirus pandemic still prevents large crowds from gathering in the Alma Grace McDonough Center.

“The resilience these students have shown to successfully achieve their educational goals despite the significant challenges caused by a global pandemic is incredible.  We look forward to celebrating their achievements at our virtual ceremony,” said Ginny R. Favede, the university’s president.

The program will begin at 5 p.m. and include messages from campus leaders, presentations of degrees, a hooding, pinning, and anointing of hands by Fr. McCouch.

The ceremony can be viewed here.
