Commencement Planned for May 6 and 7, 2021

Snow College will celebrate its 1,102 graduates during ceremonies on May 6-7.  Ceremonies on both campuses will see modifications to accommodate current COVID-19 restrictions and guidelines. The Ephraim ceremony will be held outdoors in the Terry Foote Stadium on May 7.  Guests will need to be seated by 2:30 PM, when the processional march begins. At 3:00, the commencement ceremony will begin. There will be a reception on the Robert Stoddard Field immediately following the ceremony.   Students finishing their four-year degree will be recognized in a commencement convocation on May 6, and graduates from the Richfield Campus will be honored as well that day. The Richfield ceremony will begin at 11:00.

In Ephraim, Kristen Cox, a successful executive, university fellow, published author, and former budget director for the State of Utah, will address the graduates and receive the honorary degree pronounced upon her last year.  The global pandemic did not allow for an in-person recognition.  State Representative Francis Gibson will also receive the honorary degree.  Amanda Drake and Tanner Edington, the valedictorians of the two- and four-year programs, will also be recognized.  Successful entrepreneur and member of the State Board of Higher Education, Alan Hall, will address graduates in Richfield, and Brent Thorne will receive a special recognition.

Additional details about the commencement events can be found at, and detailed demographics about the graduating class.
