Minot State honors Class of 2020

MINOT, N.D. – Minot State University awarded 580 degrees to undergraduate students and 92 to graduate students as its Class of 2020, the University announced Monday.

Due to ongoing large-group restrictions put in place by the state during the COVID-19 pandemic, MSU will not host its traditional spring graduation ceremony. The University will, however, honor graduates with a week-long celebration during finals week of May 11-15 and Minot State will hold a special graduation ceremony in the fall.

“We are certainly excited to announce and recognize Minot State University’s 2020 graduating class,” said Minot State President Dr. Steven Shirley. “Unfortunately, we are unable to do that in a traditional sense this spring due to COVID-19. However, the pandemic does not diminish our sense of pride and excitement for all the accomplishments of this outstanding group of graduates. We look forward to celebrating them online this month and are excited to host a formal ceremony in the fall so we can properly recognize them with a traditional commencement.”

Graduates are listed below according to hometowns and include degree and major(s). North Dakota graduates are listed first by hometown, followed by students with out-of-state addresses listed alphabetically by state, then hometown. Canadian students are listed alphabetically by province, then hometown, and finally, international students listed by country and hometown.
