Webcast 2010
For the past few years, the ceremony has been Webcast for family, friends, and graduates who can’t make the trip to upstate New York. “I am grateful for the live Webcast because both my sisters could watch it live and ‘be there’ with me,” said Celeste Joyce, MS in nursing grad. “My sister texted me ‘saw your smiling face’ when the camera did a close up (my phone was on vibrate, of course).” Robert Netzly, who earned a BS in Liberal Studies, shared his story, “I live on the West Coast and so does my family, so it wasn’t possible for everyone to travel out to see me graduate. Because of the Webcast my parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles were all able to see me ‘walk the stage’ and finish what I started — they’re very proud. Mostly, though, I am thankful that my two young children were able to watch their daddy graduate on the computer while sitting on grandma’s lap...they might not remember it 15 years from now, but I will!”

The Webcast is now archived on the College’s Web site at:


First Awards Convocation — A New Annual Tradition for the College
On July 8, the day before Commencement 2010, Excelsior held its first awards convocation, solely dedicated to the academic achievements and life accomplishments of its recipients.

Graduate and alumni achievement were celebrated together as one of the pre-commencement events — and the stories the awardees told as they each took their turn at the podium were amazing, inspiring, and poignant.

Provost and Chief Academic Officer Dana Offerman and VP of Institutional Advancement Cathy Kushner were on hand to present the graduate awards and introduce the awardees. President of the Alumni Association Advisory Board John Amidon and Advisory Board member Danny Scott did the same for our accomplished alumni honorees.
