Virtual messages honor CEE graduates

The Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering collected virtual messages to congratulate the class of 2020.| Short Read

This is an unusual year for graduation. Traditional events and celebrations have been cancelled or postponed, and graduates are finishing their semester far from campus.

In lieu of an in-person event, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering has collected virtual messages to honor and celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s CEE graduates. The web page features videos, alumni advice and a full list of CEE graduate names. We invite you to visit the page and join in our virtual celebration of CEE graduates!
