82nd Commencement Ceremony

The graduates of 2021 and their family and friends are invited to participate in the 82nd Annual LCC Commencement Ceremony on May 8th, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. outdoors at the Lamar Community College Wellness Center. If graduates are able to attend, we are planning a special recognition for the Class of 2020 during the 2021 ceremony. Here are a few points to consider when preparing to attend the ceremony:

  • As this will be an outdoor-uncovered event, we ask that you dress for Lamar weather.
  • Please make sure to bring your mask and abide by the 6-foot social distancing requirement for family groups.

This information can change at any time. More information will be provided as the time draws nearer. #LopesGrad2021


Antelope Night

Congratulations to each outstanding, award-winning Lamar student and graduate! Antelope Night is LCC’s student awards night, celebrating student accomplishments both inside the classroom and out. This year, we’ve brought it to everyone as a Virtual Antelope Night on Facebook. (link it here LamarCC Facebook) We will also be mailing diplomas/certificates, official transcripts, and diploma covers so we ask for graduates to please make sure their mailing address is correct in their student portal. We also encourage faculty, staff, and students to use #LopesGrad2021 when posting your recognitions on your personal social media accounts so we can all join in the celebration.
