View Class of 2020 Celebration Attendee List

You did all the work. And, in the end, you got the diploma. But missing out on commencement with your classmates was tough for the CSB and SJU classes of 2020. This fall is your chance to fix that.


The CSB/SJU Class of 2020 Celebration
Saturday, Sept. 11

  • 2 p.m. Combined CSB/SJU Commencement Ceremony, Saint John’s Abbey Church
  • 4 p.m. Reception for grads, guests, staff and faculty (including appetizers and hosted bar), CSB Mall
  • 7 p.m. Outdoor concert with Fred Savage and the Unbeatables, Sal’s


Careful planning and coordination have gone into creating a special and specific day for you – including your chance to wear that cap and gown at the first-ever joint commencement event. Each graduate is permitted up to two guests* for the ceremony. Check your email for a link to register for this event. You are responsible for registering both yourself and your guests (in order to minimize duplicate registrations). Please register by August 15. If you did not receive an email with registration information, contact us at  [email protected].

As graduates of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University, you and your classmates deserve to feel proud. You deserve to celebrate. This is the day you’ve earned. Reach out to your Johnnie and Bennie friends and let’s get the whole class on board. After the way you had to leave campus in March 2020, we can’t wait to properly welcome you back.
