Snow Cancels Ceremony, But Not the Celebration for This Flurry of New Graduates

by Tom McNamara | Jan 28, 2015

For the second time in its history, DeSales University’s mid-year commencement was cancelled on Saturday, January 24, because of snow.

Graduates will receive their diplomas and a program from the ceremony in the mail, and all graduates are invited to walk in the May 2015 commencement.

Rev. Bernard F. O’Connor, OSFS, president of DeSales University, and the DeSales community mailed diplomas to 153 graduating students, including 102 bachelor’s and 51 master’s degrees.

In addition to the January 2015 degree recipients, DeSales awarded 203 degrees to students in September 2014, including 84 bachelor’s and 119 master’s degrees. Because there is no formal September ceremony, these graduates are invited to participate in the January event.

The graduating students from both January 2015 and September 2014 are from the following states: 308 from Pennsylvania; 17 from New Jersey, 5 from New York, 4 from Maryland, 3 each from Connecticut and Florida, 2 each from California, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Texas, and Florida, and 1 each from Delaware, Illinois, Minnesota, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Utah, and Virginia.
