Hometown News Release


College Marketing and Communications will distribute a press release announcing 2020 graduate information to students' hometown newspapers following Commencement on May 22, 2020. 

This general news release will be submitted automatically for every graduating senior and will include the student's name, hometown, undergraduate degree and honors, as well as information about this year's Commencement Exercises.

Please note that these announcements are printed at the discretion of individual editors, most often in weekly and small daily newspapers. Large metropolitan newspapers are not likely to publish them.
