Rush University Commencement 2021

On May 1, 2021, Rush University held its 49th commencement ceremony, with nearly 850 graduates. Graduates, their families and friends, faculty and others were able to watch the ceremony together live and celebrate across social media and a live chat. The Main Ceremony video includes well wishes for graduates from leaders at Rush, the call to order by university president Sherine Gabriel, MD, MSc, an address by the student speaker, Fritzi Flores, MS-HSM, the Commencement Address from Judy Faulkner, MS, founder and CEO of Epic and conferring of degrees. Videos of the awarding of degrees and live reactions from graduates in each college, recorded on May 1, will be shared later this week.
