(Macomb, IL) -- Spring commencement ceremonies will be held in-person for Western Illinois University students in Macomb and the Quad Cities.
The move comes after changes in Illinois' COVID-related restrictions. With Governor JB Pritzker's announcement last week on progress in vaccinations for the virus and further lowering restrictions, the university has decided to hold in-person, outdoor commencement ceremonies for 2021 and 2020 graduates the weekend of May 14th-16th.
The university says details are being finalized, including the number of guests allowed. For now, the individual commencement photo experiences planned on both campuses for March 24 -18 are canceled. Macomb ceremonies will be held on Hanson Field, while the Quad Cities ceremony will be held at a venue in Moline.
