In light of the spread of the coronavirus and the associated effects on society, RWTH Aachen University has decided to cancel the Graduation Celebration this year. It will instead take place on the first weekend of September 2021.

The Graduation Celebration will be an open air event at the Aachen Laurensberg Riding Association Dressage Stadium and the surrounding grounds.Copyright: Andreas Schmitter
Since this is a riding stadium, some of the surrounding area is covered by sand or gravel. Graduates will be lined up on a sandy area before the procession. Please choose appropriate shoes and clothing for this. Despite the celebratory nature of the event, high heels are not recommended.
The seats in the stands will be covered, but the area where graduates will be seated will not be. The event will still take place even if it rains! It will only be cancelled or discontinued if there are storms. If it does rain, graduates will receive transparent ponchos. But we hope, of course, that the sun will shine!
