It is our tradition at Austin College to mark the end of the Academic Year by gathering together for a service of worship and gratitude. We will continue that tradition this year, even as we maintain appropriate social distancing behavior, by preparing and sharing a remote ('RooMote) Baccalaureate service.
The service will include prayer and sacred readings led by members of the Class of 2020 and music from current and alumni members of the Austin College A Cappella Choir. The Rev. Amy Poling Sutherlun ’00, co-pastor of First Presbyterian Church of San Marcos, Texas, will deliver the Baccalaureate sermon.
All members of the Austin College community are invited and welcome to participate remotely in the 2020 Austin College Baccalaureate.
Austin College Commencement exercises are scheduled for August 8-9, 2020. Though we cannot be together in May, we are eager to celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2020. On Saturday, a Senior Party is planned, and the traditional Commencement ceremony will be held on Sunday morning.
