On March 14, the class of 2020 held an “unofficial senior ceremony,” AKA “fauxmencment,” featuring flowers, speeches, tears, and laughter. “I will never forget the ceremony in the amphitheater and how full my heart was from all the love and warmth around me,” says Maheen Akram ’20 (pictured above), who is from Srinagar in the region of Jammu and Kashmir and is currently staying with family friends in Wayland, Mass.
The Wellesley community is invited to attend a special online event on Sunday, May 31, at 12 p.m. EDT, to celebrate the achievements of and award degrees to the remarkable red class of 2020.

Johnson wrote, “While this celebration is not intended to replace commencement, it will allow us all—family, friends, faculty, staff, and alumnae—to join together as a community to acknowledge the accomplishments, compassion, and courage of our seniors.”
