Congratulations CCS Class of 2020!

Charles Dickens began A Tale of Two Cities with a juxtaposition: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” With the arrival of the graduation of the Class of 2020, it seems only fitting to acknowledge the same juxtaposition in this moment. We wish we could be together to celebrate as we had planned, but the Universe had other plans. While staff and faculty remain behind in Santa Barbara, you might be elsewhere, celebrating with a smaller group of friends and family than you expected. It is difficult to summon the same unabashed joy we would have shared as a group of 900 smiling people in Campbell Hall. Even so, we are thrilled to celebrate you as you prepare for your next journey in life. As we read through your achievements and your plans featured in this year’s unique Graduate Album, we got to know you even better, to laugh at your jokes, and to delight in your accomplishments. We are so proud of all of you. We hope to see you in June 2021 to celebrate the best of times together at our future postponed Commencement.
