Local News

BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Baton Rouge Community College is holding their first in-person commencement ceremony since the start of the pandemic.

The ceremony for the graduating class of 2021 is set for Thursday, May 20 at 9 a.m.

“Commencement is one of the most memorable and celebrated moments in a student’s life,” said BRCC Chancellor Dr. Willie E. Smith. “Unfortunately, last year the pandemic kept the BRCC community from holding an in-person ceremony. We are excited that we have this opportunity to acknowledge the achievements of our remarkable graduates and celebrate all of their hard work in-person, in a safe environment this year.”

The graduation ceremony is currently scheduled to “take place outside on the BRCC Mid City Campus grounds north of the Bienvenue Student Center,” according to Baton Rouge Community College.

The pandemic is limiting the number of people that can attend the in-person commencement ceremony.

If you can’t attend, BRCC is planning to live stream the graduation ceremony on their social media pages.
