Congratulations to the Class of 2021!

The Columbia GSAPP Commencement ceremony will be webcast live on
Thursday, April 29th from 10:00-11:30am EDT.

We invite all of your family and friends to join this celebration of your accomplishments. The accompanying End of Year Show, an extensive web-based exhibition featuring student work from across programs, opens immediately following the commencement ceremony.

Detailed information for Graduates is accessible on the Commencement 2021 page.

GSAPP has partnered with the new and experimental online platform ohyay to create a unique Virtual Ceremony experience on Thursday, April 29th. The event will occur in an online space crafted especially for GSAPP to include the broadcast of the ceremony, as well as interaction with graduates, live on-screen as their names are called, a live feed of the Faculty stage party, and chat with emoji reactions for graduates, faculty, and the audience of family and friends.

Anyone can join on ohyay and the number of guests per graduate is not limited. ohyay is web browser-based and works best on Chrome. A log-in is required, but advanced registration is not. Guests will not be visible during the ceremony (i.e., their audio/video will be off), but they can participate in chat and reactions.

Immediately following the ceremony, all participants and guests are invited to mingle in the ohyay virtual reception spaces. Here, guests can explore different “rooms,” meeting each other’s families and faculty. These spaces will allow for live audio/video, chat, and emoji reactions for any participant.

Advanced instructions for joining the ceremony on ohyay will be available soon. For those who choose not to participate on ohyay, the ceremony will also be broadcast on our website at arch.columbia.edu/commencement and will be available on Youtube and Panopto.

Message for Graduates

Current students, Alumni, Faculty, and family members are invited to submit messages for Class of 2021 Graduates to be included in the virtual Ceremony webcast. Entries will be accepted until Thursday, April 22nd.
