College Experience In COVID-19 Era: CBS2 Checks Out The Many Safety Protocols At Iona

August 11, 2020 / 6:17 PM EDT / CBS New York

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) -- Life has returned to the Iona College campus.

But due to the coronavirus pandemic, it doesn't look the same .

Masks are required on campus.

Junior Maeve Ellen Wydan told CBS2's Hazel Sanchez on Tuesday she's comforted by the changes.

"Just walking around you see all of the students, the faculty, staff, taking the precautions. Everyone's wearing face masks. Everyone is social distancing," Wydan said.

Online classes started Monday. Of the 4,000 students enrolled at Iona, 60% will be taking classes on campus when in-person learning begins next week.

All students and faculty are required to test negative for COVID-19 within 14 days prior to returning to campus. Every day thereafter, everyone must answer a health survey on the college-created Gael Care mobile app.

"If you're symptom free, you get a badge. And when you get that badge, you have to show it before entering a classroom, or the library or the offices, just to add that extra layer of security so that you know the campus is healthy," Iona College communications director Diana Costello said.

"I think it's good. Most students will follow it," sophomore Daniel Pope said.

Mask and social distancing reminders are posted everywhere, including on the floor of the cafeteria line. Tables are spread out. Classrooms are spaced appropriately. Transparent plastic sheets have been installed for professors to speak behind, and new classroom cameras have been installed so students can attend virtually.

Other campuses, like at Molloy College on Long Island, have temperature-checking stations at every building.

Iona has also adjusted its campus housing. Now, no more than two students are allowed in each dorm room.

Iona staff will police campus to make sure everyone follows safety guidelines.

"With college students, we are gonna have those ... some that don't listen and those that are gonna listen," sophomore Biliami Hopoi said.

"If you're seen not wearing your mask you can start off getting a warning and the penalties would increase from there," Costello added.

College administrators say health and safety is a priority and they will not tolerate anyone who doesn't respect the rules.

Iona Presentation College

From the principal, dear families and friends, this will be the last edition of the ionian for 2021 and it is hard to believe that we are at the end of another school year. when i reflect upon the year, it has been filled with so many joyful and memorable moments.  i am of the firm belief that a community is not founded upon buildings and possessions, but rather on people. iona presentation college is an incredibly special place because of all the wonderful people that give so generously..

As part of our journey at Iona this year, Catholic Education Western Australia (CEWA) conducted a Cyclic Review, a 360-degree process whereby all dimensions of our community were reviewed. This was a particularly fruitful exercise as it was most affirming of the many outstanding things that occur at Iona, but also highlighted aspects for consideration into the future. So, I share with you some of the insights gleaned from the panel members,

" There is overwhelming consensus amongst all data sources that Iona Presentation College's community has a culture which is welcoming, enduring, safe, faith-filled and nurturing. This is seen as a point of difference compared to many schools and is evident in the esteem with which students value their place within the College, the way community members (both past and present) honour their membership of the Iona Alumni, and the multi-generational connection that community members maintain with the College.

Past and present members of the College community speak highly of the holistic education offered at Iona Presentation College and it was noted that the most effective advertising is 'word of mouth'. To quote one data source, "The school returned my child's sparkle".

There are many opportunities for all members of the College community to be actively involved in the life of the College. Groups such as Friends of Music, Friends of Sport and Men of Iona (to name but a few), ensure that all can contribute to the College and provide points of connection between the community and the College.

There is a sense of pride in being an Ionian and the term is tangible, valued and appreciated by all. Though the Presentation Sisters are less active within the College, the charism, personified by them, flourishes at Iona Presentation College and is genuinely treasured. Their time, counsel and impact are palpable.

The Parent Council is active and contributes to the College's cohesiveness and connectedness. The use of Class Representatives offers excellent opportunities for parents to feel included and to contribute, celebrate and socialise with other members of the College community.

The College Advisory Council functions extremely well and assists the College in many ways to ensure that Iona Presentation College has every opportunity to provide a contemporary, effective, differentiated, and holistic Catholic education to as wide a diversity of students as it can accommodate. The dichotomy between ensuring fiscal considerations are observed while offering an education to those who may require financial support is noted in enrolment considerations and aligns with the tenet of the Presentation charism and the actions of their founder, Nano Nagle.

The College's transition to K-12 and its transition to CEWA's governance have presented numerous opportunities and challenges to the College community in recent years. Consensus would indicate that these significant changes have been handled professionally and Iona Presentation College is well on the way to continuing its tradition of excellence, exceptional pastoral care and Catholicity.

Communications between the College and the home, at all levels, was acclaimed by data sources. The level of feedback on progress and achievement that is provided to students and their families is exemplary and keeps all abreast of how the students are progressing, what they need to do to complete assessments and the intent of programs taught.

Note was made by community members regarding the seamless way in which Iona Presentation College pivoted to remote learning considering the constraints dictated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The high quality of the communication allowed all students to continue their studies unabated. It was noted that students, including those in the Year 12 ATAR stream, 'did not miss a beat' and had everything they needed to continue their studies at 9.00am the morning after the requirement for students to not attend school was made. This is characteristic of the way in which the College's communication fosters strong connections between home and school.

The co-curricular opportunities offered to all students are outstanding and cover an impressively wide array of areas. The College identified close to 80 co-curricular offerings. It was universally acknowledged that staff at Iona Presentation College go 'above and beyond' to offer opportunities for students to experience a wide variety of learning opportunities within and outside the classroom. Students also have every opportunity to excel in their chosen field.

Student leadership is provided with a wide variety of opportunities to ferment a culture in which all students, regardless of the pathway upon which they embark, can serve in leadership positions and contribute to the decision-making processes at the College. There is a tradition of celebrating achievements, and the College takes immense pride in recognising the accomplishments of students, staff, alumni, and community members.

Iona Presentation College undertook a Climate Survey in 2021 and the findings were delved into deeply to determine what perceptions of the College offered opportunities to celebrate and which areas provided areas for growth. The findings were shared with the College community by the College Leadership Team in a judicious and pastoral manner which honoured the wonderful work done by staff and communicated which areas the College could focus on to improve the quality of the educational and pastoral opportunities it offered.

There is a cohesive, collaborative and collegial relationship between staff members where various roles are equally valued. A comment was made that there was not a 'them' and 'us' distinction between teaching and non-teaching staff. Rather, there was a well-supported belief that everyone's contribution was honoured and valued ."

Some of the areas identified for future consideration were as follows:

  • Strengthening the relationship with Parish,
  • Growing faith connections through retreat experiences, particularly with the introduction of a Year 12 Retreat,
  • Continue to grow connection between Junior School and Senior School,
  • Keeping the story of our Presentation Sisters front and centre,
  • Reviewing decision making practices – staff and student voice,
  • Development of a Vision for Learning that encompasses Pre-K to Year 12, and
  • Continued analysis of data for growth and improvement.

As we have worked upon the development of a new Strategic Plan over the course of this year for 2022 and beyond, the above has been considered when planning our improvement journey in the coming years.

In closing, I would once again like to extend an enormous thank you to all families for your support in my first year of Principal at Iona. It has been an absolute privilege to serve this wonderful community and I can't wait to be part of the 2022 journey.

I wish you all a happy and Holy Christmas and hope that the New Year affords you much time with loved ones. Have a happy and safe holiday.

Iona locks down after superspreader event triggers 65 positive COVID-19 cases

iona presentation college covid 19

NEW ROCHELLE – Iona College was locked down Monday – its classes switched online for at least two weeks — after a single superspreader event among student athletes led to at least 65 positive COVID-19 tests late last week.

In a news release from spokeswoman Diana Costello, the college said: "Late last week, Iona’s surveillance testing identified an uptick in positive COVID-19 cases among certain athletic teams. Iona immediately accelerated aggressive, widespread testing of all teammates and potential contacts. More than 800 tests were quickly performed. A total of 58 cases have been identified at this point."

Costello later noted that the number of cases had risen to 65, adding that seven different sports teams had at least one case, and that 98% of the positive cases involve student-athletes. 

Workouts and practices were paused immediately after the first cases were reported last week, she said.

Costello said contact tracing had led college officials to conclude that "the virus was transmitted through a single, isolated event, and is not indicative of a broader spread on campus.

"Iona’s rigorous COVID-19 testing protocols were developed exactly for this reason — to identify and respond to positive cases as quickly as possible," Costello said.  

Some of those who tested positive, she said, lived off-campus.

What it means

What this means to Iona immediately is:

  • Classes continue, online, from Oct. 12 to 26;
  • Students who tested positive must isolate in their rooms for 14 days from the date of their positive test. The school will coordinate their food, laundry and other services. If they choose to return to their homes, and can do so without using public transportation, they are permitted to do so.
  • Those exposed to a positive case will be contacted and asked to quarantine for 14 days from their date of exposure.  
  • No visitors will be allowed on campus or in residence halls. 
  • COVID-19 testing will continue on campus.

'Unfortunate' news

Iona College President Seamus Carey, who pushed to bring students back to campus three weeks early in an effort to catch a lull in the virus, said moving the college to a virtual setting was always among the planned responses to an outbreak.

Students were permitted back on campus in August only after a negative COVID-19 test, to be followed by regular testing of faculty, staff and students. Between 250 and 500 students have been required to go for surveillance testing each week, Costello said.

It was that regular testing that led to the discovery of the outbreak, triggering contact tracing.

“We have always said we would act from a place of caution when it comes to matters of health and safety,” Carey said. “This news is unfortunate. But Iona’s rigorous testing and monitoring procedures were developed to identify and respond to positive cases as quickly as possible."

Carey said that, while the rise in cases still did not reach the state threshold that would require a shutdown, "we are acting decisively to protect our community."

He said contact tracing is being conducted in coordination with health officials from the state and local governments and "Iona’s Task Force will continue to assess the data daily, providing regular updates and guidance as we move forward. The COVID-19 testing dashboard will be updated daily."

Fearing the superspreader

The spike in cases is precisely what Carey spoke about in mid-August, as the campus prepared to welcome students back to the campus on North Avenue.

Asked specifically about the threat posed by one big, off-campus party, one superspreader event, Carey paused.

"That is the one issue that does not go away," he said. "I had a conversation with the head of security about that, just to make sure. 'Hey, where are our students living off campus?' Let's really closely monitor that, let's constantly remind them of their responsibility to the campus community, and to the community at large. And if they're not upholding the protocols, then they can't come to campus.' But that's not enough because we don't want them to affect the community, either."

While his task force could set all kinds of rules and protocols for on-campus behavior, Carey conceded in that interview that the control stops at the campus gate.

"When they're on campus, we can say masks, distancing, hygiene, all those things. And those are going to happen," he said. "When they go off campus, we don't have as much control. That's where I think the Iona ethos has to come into play. These students have to show their maturity and leadership."

New Rochelle robo-call

The news from Iona — which is yards from where Gov. Andrew Cuomo first set up a coronavirus containment zone last March, as the virus took hold in New York — prompted New Rochelle Mayor Noam Bramson to send a citywide robo-call, warning residents to the outbreak.

On his campaign website, Bramson wrote: "At this time, the outbreak is confined entirely to Iona’s student body with no indication of spread to the larger community, and nearly all cases have been traced to a single event."

Bramson wrote that Iona "is undertaking strict and comprehensive measures and has been fully transparent in sharing information with state, county, and city officials."

"Although this outbreak appears confined to the Iona student body, it serves as an important reminder to all of us to observe public health guidelines," the mayor wrote. "Wear a mask, practice physical distancing, and wash your hands frequently."

STAC pauses

Meanwhile, St. Thomas Aquinas College in Sparkill announced a "Phase 3 Temporary Safety Pause" for the campus, to take effect at day's end Monday and last at least one week.

All instruction from Oct. 13 to 16 will be remote, the notice said, but residence halls will stay open and the dining hall will serve take-out meals only.

STAC has been holding random testing, which college officials said had reported five positive cases in the past several days. The college statement called the class closures one of its "planned pivot points" built into the campus reopening plan to help evaluate and monitor the COVID situation. 

"We are at a point now where the positive testing rates in Rockland County and elsewhere in New York State are escalating," the announcement stated, referring to restrictions now in place throughout a state-mandated COVID cluster enforcement initiative in eastern Ramapo and a small portion of New City.

Meanwhile, officials said, the overall testing positivity rate in the campus community was 0.41%, well below the state average that has hovered around 1% in recent weeks.

Iona College, Monmouth University deal with COVID-19 spikes

NEW ROCHELLE, Westchester County (WABC) -- Iona College in Westchester County is locked down due to a coronavirus outbreak.

The university has said this all started with one isolated event. But, they haven't said what exactly that event was.

Still, they have moved to virtual learning through October 26th.

The college said they noticed the outbreak last week.

Right now, the total number of cases on campus is up to 69.

Iona says they've linked 64 of those COVID-19 cases to one super spreader event.

The majority, 98% of those cases, were reported among student-athletes.

It's not clear if students who didn't follow public health protocols will face any type of disciplinary action, but it is being investigated.

Despite the climb in positive cases, the university saying they do not believe this is indicative of a larger spread on campus.

The state requires college campuses to move to virtual learning if they have more than 100 cases among students and faculty.

Iona College posted on its website,

"While our positive test number does not approach the New York State threshold forcing colleges to move to virtual instruction, we are acting decisively to protect our community."

There's a similar situation at Monmouth University where they have 125 cases they say are connected to a single off-campus super spreader event

They shut down in-person classes in September...

The university said they need cooperation from students if they're going to be able to resume in-person classes this semester.

AGWA Pulse Youth Advisory Panel member Grace Cole recently spoke to this year’s Pulse Perspectives artist Tayla Wetherall about her work Don’t you forget about me . Created while Tayla was studying Year 12 ATAR Visual Arts at Iona Presentation College, it focuses on themes of family connections and the passage of time. These themes resonated with Cole upon her first viewing of the work at the Pulse Perspectives exhibition and she shares her reflections on the piece below.

About The Artwork

Impressively executed, Don't you forget about me is a poignant artwork.

The simplicity of the subject matter allows the viewer to instantly understand the emotion, particularly within the context in which it was made. Upon first viewing the artwork, it brought me to the verge of tears; thoughts of abandoned family members during COVID-19 come to mind.

The subject matter is that of artist Tayla Wetherall's grandmother. When Tayla was 11 years old, she left South Africa and moved to Perth. Tayla's grandmother still resides in South Africa, a quarter of the way across the globe. Tayla speaks of this artwork as a way of representing the family connections which cannot be maintained as easily now that international travel isn't an option for most.

Tayla mentions that her Grandmother turned 80 this year and that their family would have loved to celebrate with her; while her Grandmother would have loved to visit Pulse Perspectives to view Tayla's artwork in person.

Gran turned 80 this year, she couldn't come to see the work; we couldn't come over to celebrate with her. The time spent on the work weighed on me a lot.

According to Tayla, time was an inescapable theme of the piece. Tayla spent six to seven months creating her work, with a lot changing in the world throughout the making process.

The message that Tayla wants every viewer to take away from her artwork is incredibly important: "Don't forget about your family who live a bit further away that you don't see as often. Don't forget to have those connections."

I know we all want to see our friends and go out but don't forget about the family events, the family dinners and that kind of family bond.

Tayla Wetherall Don't you forget about me 2020.

1. The face: The gaze draws in the viewer's attention, emphasising the centre of the image with the face as the focal point. The light beige tones of the face contrast the dark muted brown tones of the shadows behind the figure, further emphasising the face. The distant gaze portrays a sense of separation and longing for the bright outside world. The face is also one of the most detailed sections of the image.

2. Cigarette: The cigarette is a symbol of comfort through its ritualistic nature. My gran would always smoke her daily cigarette near the window or sitting on her patio step. It was her time to relax, watch the outside world and unwind.

3. Barred windows: The almost jail-like windows are used as a physical separation from the foreground and the figure. This separation is further emphasised through the contrast of the organic figure and bedding in the midground and background, as well as the geometric horizontal and vertical lines of the windows.

4. Dark interior, light exterior: The muted brown tones convey a sad and dreary interior that contacts the light exterior, shining through the windows and casting light onto the bed in the midground. Contrast in colour portrays a clear divide of the environments. This mixed with the longing gaze conveys a desire for a "brighter" environment and time.

5. Gown: The vivid royal blue colour of the gown contrasts against other muted tones in the image, emphasising the centre of the image. The mix of beige tones and vivid blue colours creates a calm atmosphere.

6. Stance near window: The figure is positioned close to the widow to emphasise a sense of longing for the outside.

“Due to the pandemic the sense of separation and longing is more relevant than ever, so I channeled my own experience with this into my work, particularly with family. My gran has always been there for the important milestone moments throughout my life and when I moved to Perth that separation was hard. When the pandemic hit she felt even further away, so my piece is an ode to her; to recognise that even though we are so far away, we’ll never forget to celebrate the special moments and milestones.”

The Making Process

Tayla mentions that there was a lot of planning required in preparing the making process. Don't you forget about me is the second piece in a set of two. Tayla wasn't satisfied with the outcome of the first piece but felt that the final piece, the product of around six months of hard work, turned out exactly the way she had intended it to be.

In the creation of the piece, Tayla sought inspiration from artists like Edward Hopper and found the help her teachers provided to be indispensable for her in creating her work and the concepts behind it.

The concept is just as important as the finished product. You need to come up with that concept in a week.

ATAR Visual Arts can be hectic. Tayla advises future students to take the time to seek help from teachers to better themselves and to tackle the visual and written components of Visual Arts ATAR in small, manageable chunks: "A paragraph of analysis here and there, a little bit of work on your piece."

For Tayla, Don't you forget about me holds sentimental value and inspiration. "[The piece was] the first thing that showed me that you will get there if you spend enough time and work hard enough ". Tayla not only topped art in her high school and made it into Pulse Perspectives , but she also received Iona Presentation College's Principal's Award.

Tayla spoke of the tremendous support she and her peers have received from her school in facilitating the student's artistic visions. Pictured below is a display within Iona's art department featuring Tayla's artworks from years 7 to 12.

Tayla describes the process of producing her painting as long, tedious, and yet so rewarding. She never expected her work to get into Pulse Perspectives as the prospect had seemed like an unattainable dream.

[There are] so many amazing works in Pulse Perspectives that just goes to show the calibre of skill, effort, time and teachers’ support: it's just an amazing exhibition. Every year it's amazing.

Don't you forget about me is truly a piece that should be appreciated in person. The sheer scale of the work and its realism strikes the viewer in a beautiful way.

Pulse Perspectives is on display at the Gallery until 27 September 2021.

New modification of Russian VVER-440 fuel loaded at Paks NPP in Hungary

DECEMBER 14, 2020 — After the recent refueling at power unit 3 of the Hungarian Paks NPP, its VVER-440 reactor has been loaded with a batch of fresh fuel including 18 fuel bundles of the new modification. The new fuel will be introduced at all four operating power units of the Paks NPP, and the amount of new-modification bundles in each refueling will be increased gradually.

Development of the new VVER-440 fuel modification was completed in 2020 under the contract between TVEL JSC and MVM Paks NPP Ltd. Its introduction would optimize the hydro-uranium ratio in the reactor core, enabling to increase the efficiency of fuel usage and advance the economic performance of the power plant operation. All VVER-440 fuel modifications are manufactured at the Elemash Machine-Building Plant, a facility of TVEL Fuel Company in Elektrostal, Moscow Region.

Paks Nuclear Power Plant

“Introduction of a new fuel is an option to improve technical and economic performance of a nuclear power plant without substantial investment. We are actively engaged in development of new models and modifications of VVER-440 fuel for power plants in Europe. The projects of the new fuels for Loviisa NPP in Finland, Dukovany NPP in the Czech Republic, Mochovce and Bohunice NPPs in Slovakia, are currently at various stages of implementation. Despite the same reactor model, these projects are quite different technically and conceptually, since we take into account the individual needs and requirements of our customers,” commented Natalia Nikipelova, President of TVEL JSC.

For reference:

The project of development and validation of the new fuel has been accomplished with participation of a number of Russian nuclear industry enterprises, such as OKB Gidropress (a part of Rosatom machine-building division Atomenergomash), Bochvar Institute (material science research facility of TVEL Fuel Company), Elemash Machine-building plant and Kurchatov Institute national research center. At the site of OKB Gidropress research and experiment facility, the new fuel passed a range of hydraulic, longevity and vibration tests.

Paks NPP is the only functioning nuclear power plant in Hungary with total installed capacity 2000 MWe. It operates four similar units powered by VVER-440 reactors and commissioned one by one in 1982-1987. Currently, Paks NPP is the only VVER-440 plant in the world operating in extended 15-monthes fuel cycle. The power plant produces about 15 bln kWh annually, about a half of electric power generation in Hungary. In 2018, the project of increasing the duration of Paks NPP fuel cycle won the European competition Quality Innovation Award in the nomination “Innovations of large enterprises”. Russian engineers from TVEL JSC, Kurchatov Institute, OKB Gidropress, Bochvar Institute and Elemash Machine-building plant provided assistance to the Hungarian colleagues in accomplishment of the project.

  TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom incorporates enterprises for the fabrication of nuclear fuel, conversion and enrichment of uranium, production of gas centrifuges, as well as research and design organizations. It is the only supplier of nuclear fuel for Russian nuclear power plants. TVEL Fuel Company of Rosatom provides nuclear fuel for 73 power reactors in 13 countries worldwide, research reactors in eight countries, as well as transport reactors of the Russian nuclear fleet. Every sixth power reactor in the world operates on fuel manufactured by TVEL.  www.tvel.ru

Why has coronavirus not closed the Moscow Metro… yet?

iona presentation college covid 19

The Moscow Metro won’t be closing down because of the coronavirus outbreak, the city’s mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, has promised. “The Metro is technologically designed in such a way that trains should run all the time, circulating air, to ensure that all the networks are in good working order,” he said on the Rossiya 1 TV channel. He was answering questions about the measures the city is taking against the coronavirus. If the metro were stopped now, it would take six months to bring it back to full operation later. “Therefore under all circumstances the metro will continue to run.”

What would happen if the metro was shut down?

The Moscow Metro could still technically be closed to passengers, according to Russian experts: Quarantine measures of this kind were introduced in Wuhan, one of China's largest cities, as well as in Kiev, Ukraine.

Moscow does close down some sections of the Metro for repairs from time to time.

But it is not a question of merely turning off the lights and letting employees go home: metro staff need to continue to monitor ventilation systems and the condition of the tracks.

But there is the question of what would happen to the city, if the Moscow Metro were even partially closed down, and to what extent other measures would be able to compensate for the closure, according to Pavel Zyuzin, senior research fellow at the Center for Research of Urban Transport Problems, GeoPractice Managing Partner.

“Overground transport must be ready, and, above all, the procedure for online deliveries of food, medicines and other essential goods must be simplified as far as possible, because they will be most affected. And, of course, this would entail a massive increase of road users in the city,” Pavel says. He recalls that Moscow has experienced interruptions in the movement of trains before.

iona presentation college covid 19

The one that had the biggest impact was the accident on May 25, 2005, which allegedly happened, due to a power grid overload in the city. As a result of the massive temporary blackout, the movement of trains came to a halt at 52 of the 170 Metro stations at 11 o’clock in the morning. Thousands of passengers had to be evacuated from trains stuck in tunnels, and there was no light anywhere. The operation of the Moscow Metro was only fully restored by nine o’clock in the evening.

Have there been occasions when the Metro wasn’t running at all?

In actual fact, since its opening in 1935, the Moscow Metro has carried passengers every day. It still remains the most popular form of public transport in the city (in 2019, it was used by over 9.5 million people a day!). It is hard to believe that in all this time there has been just one day when the Metro didn’t open its doors in the morning.

It happened on October 16, 1941. During the Great Patriotic War, the metro continued to carry passengers, despite enemy bombing. Trains ran until ten o’clock in the evening, after which people were accommodated at stations to hide from night air raids on the Soviet capital. Moscow experienced the worst bombing in October and November 1941. And the Soviet leadership even took the decision to destroy the Metro in the event of capture, in order to keep infrastructure facilities out of the hands of the enemy.

On the night of October 15-16, workers started dismantling the escalators and cutting electric cables, but in the morning the decision was revoked. In a matter of hours, everything was brought back to normal and at 6:45 PM, the operation of metro trains resumed. And soon after, the construction of new stations and tunnels resumed as well ( read more here ).

Iona College Creates Virtual Commencement Ceremony to Honor Graduates in the Age of COVID-19

Class of 2020 makes history as Iona’s 76th annual Commencement ceremony was forced to go virtual.

Hannah McGowan delivers a speech during the 2020 Commencement.

Iona College hosted a virtual Commencement ceremony to honor graduates until it is safe to do so in person, with Hannah McGowan ’20, president of the Student Government Association, delivering remarks on May 16, 2020.

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. — It was a Commencement ceremony no one will soon – or ever – forget. As COVID-19 forced the Class of 2020 to socially distance, cherished events and pivotal milestones such as Commencement were forced to go online. But that did not stop the Iona College community from coming together to experience these special moments with their loved ones from home. In fact, many say, the shift stretched and strengthened the College’s foundational mission of service, creativity and adaptability, as all united to celebrate a remarkable class in remarkable new ways.

From the Baccalaureate Mass to the Alumni Association Senior Toast; from the Student Leader Gael Awards to the Honors Recognition and Multicultural Ceremony – Iona students, families, faculty, staff and alumni joined in spirit over the past week to honor the Class of 2020.

The culminating event took place on Saturday, May 16, when Iona College held its 76th annual Commencement ceremony, virtually. In addition to producing and streaming a high-end video production on the College’s custom Commencement website, the broadcast was also televised free of charge to the College, complements of Altice/Optimum, with just under 10,000 unique viewers watching throughout Westchester, Long Island, Rockland, New Jersey and Fairfield County, Conn.

Although confronted with limitations, Iona aimed to preserve as much of the traditional pomp and circumstance as was possible. This included a performance by the Iona College Pipe Band, the National Anthem sung by Oliva Berry ’22, the alma mater sung by Allyson Kuppelmeyer ’20, and an invocation from Fr. Gerard Mulvey.

Darrell P. Wheeler, Ph.D., MPH, ACSW, provost and senior vice president for Academic Affairs, served as Master of Ceremonies as the College conferred undergraduate and graduate degrees as well as awards and other distinctions. As each name was read, a personalized slide with the graduate’s photo and a congratulatory message appeared on the screen. At home, meanwhile, graduates shared photos of themselves on social media wearing caps, gowns and regalia as they posed with family members on a proud, even if unexpected, day.

Maria Bartiromo, anchor and global markets editor, FOX Business Network – FOX News Channel , delivered the keynote address. Acknowledging that graduates are launching into the next era of their lives during a very difficult time, she remained optimistic. 

“You are truly living through history… There is so much need and opportunity in the world today to be a force for good. We will get through this,” she said. “Work hard. There are no shortcuts. Find your passion. Love what you do. And always do the right thing – always.”

For her outstanding achievements as a trailblazer for women in journalism, and for her deep dedication to truth in reporting, Iona College conferred upon Bartiromo the degree of Doctor of Humane Letters, Honoris Causa.

Iona College President Seamus Carey, Ph.D., started by sharing a quote by literary critic Hugh Kenner, which he called a “useful reminder in many different situations.”

“He wrote: ‘What you are taking for granted is always more important than whatever you have your mind fixed on,’” said Carey. “A new reality has forced us to look more deeply into who we are as individuals and as a community… This new reality may help you see, in a new light, how and why your Iona education is so valuable. Because of it, you don’t just have a career path, but underlying skills, knowledge and values – things you may have been taking for granted – that will enable you to see the world differently and adapt to it.

“At this moment of uncertainty, as you’re leaving and we reluctantly let go, I suggest you pay attention to what you can see with all the skills you have learned. But also, take the time to pay attention to all the things you typically don’t see, all the things you take for granted. More than occasionally, walk away from your screens and look up in awe at the vast, wondrously strange universe you occupy,” Carey continued. “Iona has prepared you to live a full life. We look forward to witnessing the many ways that you will carry forward the Iona legacy by fighting the good fight. We look forward to the world built on your love.”

Hannah McGowan ’20, president of the Student Government Association, delivered the welcoming remarks on behalf of the undergraduate class, saying: “Our college journey started…at our freshman orientation, when we were told the world is run by the people that show up. Little did we know that we’d show up and have to go home. As students, we have shown up and shaped the vision of our College’s future. We have rolled with the punches and been able to transition in the face of uncontrollable change. Of course, this isn’t how we pictured our college graduation; the world is asking us to show up in a different way… We can show up by living out Iona’s mission, continuing to show our passion for service, dedicating ourselves to our community, and choosing to remember our fondest college memories. I’m honored to be part of this class that will move the world by showing up.”

On behalf of graduate students, Jarlyne Batista Monzon ’20MBA, community manager of the Hynes Institute for Entrepreneurship & Innovation, said: “Times like these remind me that I made the right decision to study and practice entrepreneurship since being an undergrad. Entrepreneurship reminds us to not look at problems as obstacles, but as opportunities to innovate and reimagine our ever changing world. Although it is bittersweet to be having graduation this way, nothing can take away our hard work.”

Dimitris A. Halaris, associate vice provost for Information Technology at Iona College , thanked Altice/Optimum for generously broadcasting the Commencement free of charge, saying it was an important component in helping to ensure access, accessibility and social distancing.

“The convenience of the television broadcast enhanced the comfort and emotional benefits for our graduates while providing broader access for family members who may not have had the Internet at home. It also supported the safety aspect of social distancing,” Halaris said. “At the same time, the broadcast offered an added benefit of being able to record the special event to a DVR. It was a wonderful addition, and we are so grateful for the partnership.”

A tentative date of Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020, has been reserved to honor the Class of 2020 with an in-person ceremony on Iona’s campus, circumstances permitting.
