In order to keep both our graduates and our campus safe, Western will courier each graduate’s diploma to their home address, along with a special package of gifts to welcome them to the Western Alumni family.

Grads, we will be sending your package to the mailing address listed as “Your Current Address” in Student Center. Please contact the Office of the Registrar if your address may have changed.

Class of 2021, you did it. You’ve pushed past what has been an incredibly demanding journey, and many of you have faced an unexpected year of online learning. You’ve made memories, life-long friends, you’ve made it through your time at Western and we’re so happy you joined us.

Perhaps it feels just like yesterday when you first stepped onto Western’s campus – and for others, it’s felt like a much longer journey. Though graduation may feel like the end of your learning years, or just the beginning for some – we hope that you maintain your curiosity to learn, and that you stay connected to Western as you start the next chapter of your life.

The Western community is proud to have stood at your side, from your first steps on campus, through the years you’ve spent with us, and finally to this special day.

Congratulations, Class of 2021 – now, we welcome you into the lifelong Western Alumni family.
