Outdoor stages were constructed across campus at the Temple Sports Complex, Geasey Field and the Edberg-Olson Athletic Hall. Chairs were placed—and spaced—on the floor at the Liacouras Center and the Temple Performing Arts Center so graduates could safely be together. The university’s 134th Commencement ceremonies were unlike any other in Temple history.
From an online celebration to honor the entire graduating class to intimate in-person school and college ceremonies where graduates had the opportunity to walk across the stage and be with their classmates, the Temple community was full of pride.
Speeches pointed out the perseverance, strength, compassion and creativity that this class has exhibited through an unpredictable and often challenging year. While honoring what they’ve endured, joy brought all Owls—family, faculty, staff, alumni and friends—together to celebrate this class.
