From a Trolley to a UPS Truck: Widener Graduates Ride in Style at Commencement

Widener lion mascot gives high fives to people in a trolley

In a highly unique approach, Widener celebrated commencement for 2020 and 2021 undergraduate and graduate students over four days with nine mini ceremonies at Memorial Field and drive throughs in front of historic Old Main. The approach allowed graduates and their families to celebrate in the format that worked best for them.

Showing their Widener pride, graduates and guests took advantage of the drive-through option to decorate their vehicles and ride in style in trolleys, limos, delivery trucks, and more.

Check out the rides and moments that made this year's drive through unforgettable.
