100 Days to Commencement Senior Celebration 2022


The class of 2022 will kick off the countdown to graduation at the 100 Days to Commencement Senior Celebration, Feb. 4, in the Student Union Multipurpose Room on the New Paltz campus from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The annual event serves as a reminder that the College is preparing to celebrate our newest graduates at in-person, outdoor Commencement ceremonies on May 20, 21 & 22, 2022. 

“There’s no doubt that the pandemic has forced us all to reassess a lot of what we do and we’re excited to celebrate our students in a familiar way,” said Assistant Director of Alumni Relations Elizabeth Diuguid ’07 (English). “The 100 Days to Commencement event is an opportunity for graduating seniors to collect resources and tools to end their undergraduate career on a high note and transition to their post-graduate plans feeling confident.”

All students who will graduate in May are invited to attend. Alumni Council representatives and other alumni will be at the Ask an Alum table to answer questions and to offer insight and advice about life after graduation.

Sponsored by the Office of Development and Alumni Relations and the SUNY New Paltz Foundation, the event will also provide information on the spring Undergraduate Commencement ceremonies, Career Services, Senior Toast, and Alumni Relations programs and services.

The event also officially launches the College’s Senior Gift program. Each year the senior class has raised more and more for the senior gift and their excitement to be part of the culture of philanthropy is growing and inspiring. The gift they leave will allow the College to continue to provide student and alumni programming through the Fund for New Paltz.
