Chestnut Hill College looks forward to celebrating the Class of 2021 through a virtual Commencement Ceremony on Saturday, May 8th.  

In order to help our graduating students connect with the CHC community and their friends and family in a way that is both celebratory and safe, Chestnut Hill College is pleased to offer each graduate a personalized website for the virtual 2021 Commencement. The link below will take you to a website where you can upload congratulatory videos, photos, or text for graduates. You will be able to search for individual students once you are in the link; please click below to access the site:

Graduates will receive a link to their personalized page by May 6th. This link will also host the Commencement ceremony videos on Saturday, May 8th. The Commencement ceremony will be broken down into a series of videos. This will include the full reading of the names of graduates in each of the three schools at the College. This format will allow graduates to watch with friends and family at any time that is convenient.  

Chestnut Hill College is honored to bestow three honorary degrees this year to Commencement speaker, Reverend James Martin, SJ, as well as Irene Gaskins, and 6ABC's Nydia Han. You can read more about the recipients here. Congratulations to all three recipients!
