Peirce College Commencement

Commencement is a BIG deal at Peirce College.

For many of our students, earning a college degree is a milestone they never thought possible. Walking across the stage in June are sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, grandparents, employees, managers, and more. Our students aren’t just students at Peirce. They are people from all walks of life, with wide-ranging goals and responsibilities, but they have one thing in common – they have achieved their goal of completing a college education. They are PROUD, and we are honored to have been their college of choice.

For a glimpse of the excitement, take a look at last year’s Commencement Ceremony video.
