The University of Rochester is easing back into its beloved traditions this fall with a variety of virtual and in-person events for alumni, students, parents, and friends. Scheduled for Friday, October 1, and Saturday, October 2, Meliora 2021 is designed especially for the Class of 2020, current parents, families, students, and reunion classes whose year of graduation ends in 0, 1, 5, or 6. It also marks the first reunion celebration for the Class of 2021. Meliora 2021 will feature academic lectures and programming as well as a social village with food trucks, live music, and more.
The signature event of the weekend will be the “One University” Commencement Ceremony on Saturday morning for all students who had degrees conferred in 2020. Featured guests include Geena Davis, the Academy Award–winning actor, producer, and gender equality advocate, who will give the commencement address on Saturday. On Friday night, comedian, actress, entrepreneur, advocate, and author Margaret Cho will perform.
