HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) - James Madison University is holding graduation ceremonies for the class of 2021 in-person at Bridgeforth Stadium.

The College of Business had its ceremony Friday afternoon. President Jonathan Alger gave a speech recognizing students’ hard work during the pandemic, mentioning what a tough year it has been — and how happy he was they could celebrate the class of 2021 in person.

“After the many challenges of this past year, this is truly a time for celebration and new beginnings,” said Alger.

The ceremony was delayed due to a thunderstorm warning after some students walked.

Ceremonies for the class of 2021 continue Sunday.
