Ceremony Honors Resilience and Perseverance During Pandemic

Virginia Beach, VA – Each year, many ECPI University online graduates travel to Virginia to participate in commencement, along with students from the Virginia Beach campus. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic prevented this from taking place. So, why not put on a virtual ceremony? That’s exactly what the online team did, complete with music, speakers, and presentation of degrees. 

“We felt it was important that we not only honor our students’ accomplishment, but also provide an opportunity for their family, friends, associates, neighbors and co-workers, who have supported them, to join in on the celebration,” says ECPI University Vice President of eLearning and Online Education Aaron Wettstein. “This has certainly been no ordinary school year. By nature, online students are great multitaskers and highly adaptable, but the pressures of the pandemic have affected them just like everyone else. So, this is also a celebration of their perseverance.”
