San Diego City College Commencement will be a two-day event consisting of both in-person and virtual events, according to campus social media.

Students who are planning to graduate this semester are now being invited to sign up for next month’s Commencement. They can contribute to the event by writing about their “Journey to Graduation” and plans for the next five years.

In addition, for a limited time, graduates can get the traditional graduation attire for free from the bookstore.

This story was featured on today’s edition of News Radio Midday, a bi-weekly newscast produced and presented remotely by the students of San Diego City College’s Radio, Television, and Film program. You can listen to the show every Monday and Wednesday at 1 p.m. on KSDS 88.3-2 or here.

Graduates should take note of two major deadlines. To be a part of these events, they have to sign up by Sunday, April 25. The deadline to apply to graduate is on Friday, April 30.
