Commencement has been held in multiple locations over the years, starting in 1960 when it was moved from its traditional location of Faith Congregational Church to Dugan Junior High School. From 1961 to 1970, commencement was held at what’s now Symphony Hall, and from 1971 to 1973, the ceremony was held on the campus green at the College. . Starting in 1974, commencement was held at the Springfield Civic Center, now the MassMutual Center. In 1991, commencement had to be moved to the West Springfield Coliseum. . Since 1998, commencement has been held on campus in the Alumni Healthful Living Center, where the class of 2019 will graduate this weekend in front of fellow students, faculty, staff, family, and friends! #FunFactFriday #WNE100 🎓🎉🙌
