Commencement and Baccalaureate 2021

Oxford College held its 176th Commencement exercises on Saturday, May 15, in Atlanta’s Georgia World Congress Center. James W. Curran, dean of Emory’s Rollins School of Public Health, delivered the address. The ceremony also featured recorded remarks from U.S. Senator Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.). Oxford graduates unable to travel to Atlanta were saluted virtually. A link to the on-demand replay webcast of the ceremony is available below. (Pre-ceremony content runs through 1:00:00 on the webcast and the ceremony begins after that content.)
