Department of Physics Graduation 2020

To the 2020 physics graduates:

In a normal year, we would enjoy an end-of-year graduation party where we celebrate together. We would take the opportunity to look back on your time at UMass and reflect on all that you have accomplished. It would be a chance to wish you luck as you go off to bigger and better things.

That time together is not possible this year, but we would still like to offer our congratulations through this virtual platform. Many of us who have had the privilege of teaching you have tried to express our gratitude in a short composition (a video or image or essay). Click on any of the images below to see the message from that instructor. For more graduation images and videos from the College of Natural Sciences, please also visit the CNS Senior Celebration page. And don't forget the UMass virtual commencement, streaming Friday at 4:30 pm at

We are grateful for your time with us, and we wish you the very best in your future endeavors.
