The 2020 class from the Naval Academy would normally have a graduation ceremony surrounded by friends and family. Due to social distancing measures aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus, graduation will look a little different this year. Commissioning events will occur over the course of ten days with five separate groups made up of around 210 midshipmen. The first group will begin on May 11th and remain on campus for two days. The first day will allow them to remove personal belongings and complete any administrative paperwork. The second day will hold the private commissioning event, which will be streamed online.
