SUNY Canton Commencement Moves Outdoors
For the first time in recent memory and perhaps in college history, SUNY Canton will conduct its Commencement outdoors.
The College’s 99th Commencement Ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m. under a tent on the Edson A. Martin Athletic Fields on Saturday, May 19. SUNY Chancellor John R. Ryan will be the keynote speaker at the event.
College officials moved the event outdoors after it was discovered that Alumni Gymnasium in the Dana Athletic Complex was in need of repair.
“It will be a memorable day in the history of SUNY Canton,” said Director of Public Relations Randy Sieminski. “If it’s as enjoyable as we envision it, we may consider conducting the ceremonies outdoors in future years.”
