The Forest Grove college schedules an online pre-recorded ceremony this Saturday for College of Health Professions graduates.

COURTESY PHOTO - Pacific University's Marsh Hall.More than 300 Pacific University students are scheduled to graduate this Saturday, Aug. 8 — they'll just do so virtually.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, participating Boxer graduates stemming from the College of Health Professions will celebrate years of hard work, not as part of an in-person ceremony with fellow students, families and friends, but rather by way of a virtual commencement ceremony to be aired via social media.

The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 9:30 a.m. this Saturday and will air on YouTube. Up-to-date information regarding the event can be found at any of Pacific University's social media accounts, including Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Like both the undergraduate and graduate ceremonies that took place this past May, Saturday's ceremony will consist of a prerecorded video comprised of introductory speeches by university administrators, key alumnus, and student dignitaries, followed by a slideshow featuring each new graduate. Individual slides will be available to look-up, download or share from the Pacific University website.

Saturday's virtual graduation will celebrate graduates from the following College of Health Professions programs:

School of Audiology

School of Dental Hygiene Studies

School of Healthcare Administration and Leadership

School of Occupational Therapy

School of Physician Assistant Studies

School of Graduate Psychology

PhD in Education & Learning

College of Optometry/Bachelor of Applied Vision Science
