ABOUT THE COVER
Unable to be on campus in person, the 218 members of the Goshen College Class of 2020 were each honored in a virtual commencement ceremony on April 26, 2020 — the first commencement in our 125-year history to be solely held virtually. This mosaic featuring each of their photos is a tribute to this incredible class, whose final year was cut short when they were thrown a curveball that no one saw coming. Their perseverance, versatility and resilience is an inspiration to us all. Congratulations Class of 2020!
