CSN to Hold In-Person Commencement Ceremony on May 15

The College of Southern Nevada will hold its 49th annual commencement ceremony at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 15 at Sam Boyd Stadium to honor the Class of 2021.

“Our Class of 2021 is among the hardest working group of college students I have ever had the pleasure of knowing,” said CSN President Dr. Federico Zaragoza.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted countless lives, and yet these students persevered through that hardship.”

“Students have overwhelmingly indicated that they prefer an in-person ceremony if the COVID environment would permit it — and at CSN, we listen to our students. I join the entire CSN Family in congratulating them on their historic achievement and I look forward to celebrating with them.”

The ceremony will feature addresses from NSHE officials, President Zaragoza, and our student commencement speaker, to be chosen later this month. Festivities will be streamed live online via CSN’s website and social media channels.

All current COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place, including social distancing, temperature checks, and mandatory face masks.

Capacity will be limited to 1,400 graduates, who will each be issued three tickets for family and friends. Students should arrive by 4:30 p.m. and should look for official communication from the Office of the Registrar to RSVP and to purchase their caps and gowns.

The commencement ceremony will be held at 6 p.m. on Saturday, May 15 at Sam Boyd Stadium, 7000 East Russell Road, Las Vegas, NV 89122.
