Although we could not be together on Grounds May 16, the UVA community joined together - virtually and creatively - to honor the students who have met the rigorous requirements to become UVA graduates. Students, faculty, staff, families, friends and alumni are invited to visit this page for special presentations from the Department of Computer Science. We also look forward to seeing graduates and their families at the University's official Final Exercises in October 2020 or May 2021.
