Eva Ostrowski and her family

“I love what I do because having someone allow you to bear witness to the struggles, triumph, or sadness that they are dealing with is such an honor and I am so appreciative of when people have the courage to share what they are going through with me,” said Eva Ostrowky, The Hun School’s new director of Counseling and Wellness.

The Hun School Celebrates 106th Commencement with an Historic and Moving In-Person Ceremony 

The Hun School of Princeton celebrated its 106th Commencement on Saturday, July 25th. The ceremony was most unusual, not only because it was one of the few in-person ceremonies held in New Jersey following the State’s relaxation of rules for outdoor gatherings, but also for its place in history.

Gregg Murray

“After I got my acceptance letter to the University of Chicago, there was an opportunity to nominate someone for the Outstanding Educator award,” Kevin said. “Without hesitation, I nominated Mr. Murray because he goes beyond every day teaching and he left an impression on me that will last a lifetime. He worked tirelessly to support me and he is someone who I fully trust.”

Calendar

Natale Family Field

Visit the Commencement Program page, where you can find a livestream of the event.

 

We anticipate each graduate will be able to bring two guests from their immediate family. The rain date will be Sunday, July 26th. In order to meet the safety guidelines, for the first time in The Hun School’s history, we will hold our ceremony on the Natale Family Field followed by a special recessional up through campus to The Mall where faculty can offer best wishes through the traditional horseshoe farewell along with family photo opportunities behind Russell Hall. While we know some of the Class of 2020 will be unable to participate because of travel restrictions, it is important to note we will celebrate all members of the class that day and livestream the entire ceremony for those unable to be present in person. 

 

LOGISTICS 

Students and their family members will process onto the field and be seated together as a unit, separated by six feet from their fellow graduates and their families. Graduates will have the opportunity to walk campus following the ceremony for pictures and socially distant greetings. 

 

HEALTH AND SAFETY

In accordance with state guidelines, the following safety measures will be in place during the event:

  • According to state guidelines and in the best interests of our families, masks will be required, except for anyone with difficulty breathing or under the age of two.
  • Individuals who are ill may not attend.
  • The ceremony will be held outdoors. 
  • Attendees will remain six feet apart at all times.
  • Access to campus buildings will be limited to restroom use only. 

 

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO

The ceremony will be livestreamed, recorded, and professionally photographed. The post event video will also include images of any graduates unable to attend. Instructions regarding how to access the broadcast will be emailed one week prior to the ceremonies; photo galleries and the commemorative video will be made available the week following the ceremonies.

 

CAP GOWN AND DRESS

It is tradition for Hun School graduates to wear semi-formal attire beneath a red graduation cap and gown at Commencement. Given the potential for high temperatures in July, we will relax our traditional dress code this year, but ask that Seniors refrain from wearing athletic gear, sneakers, flip flops, or denim.
