The final ceremony of Commencement 2021 concluded on Thursday, marking the end of a seven-day celebration of the achievements of more than 6,500 Cal State LA graduates.

Graduates from the Class of 2021 and Class of 2020 returned to campus for the long-awaited celebration. Friends and family of the Golden Eagles filled the stands in Reeder Field to watch their loved ones walk the stage.

“Graduates, today is an unforgettable chapter in the story of your life. As you write future chapters, I hope that you will never forget the faculty, staff, and fellow students who were a part of your journey, the lessons you learned during your time here, the bravery, power, tenacity and expertise you possess,” Cal State LA President William A. Covino said during his remarks. “No one can take these from you. They will serve you well in the years ahead. Wherever you go in life remember this: You are a Golden Eagle, and you will soar!”
