Southern New Hampshire University celebrated its 90th Commencement on April 30 - May 1, 2022 with four in-person ceremonies at the SNHU Arena in downtown Manchester.

Nearly 4,000 graduates celebrated in-person, while 4,000 more celebrated in a virtual ceremony on May 14 in our first ever 360-degree virtual reality format. You can find all of our spring 2022 ceremonies streaming on this playlist.

The newest members of the SNHU alumni community, representing all 50 states and 46 countries, join a growing network of more than 180,000 globally.

This year’s student speakers hailed from all walks of life, featuring inspirational messages from an international campus student from Nova Scotia, Canada, a Jamaican immigrant and first-generation college graduate, an energetic mother inspired by her three daughters to accomplish her dream of earning a college degree (42 years in the making), and a local police sergeant who served as a Marine in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Selected speakers included Amber “Riley” Sood, Vanessa Vidal-Ramharrack, DeMeeta Hulett and Sergeant Derek Cataldo.
