College of Design Fall 2020 Virtual Convocation

Welcome to the College of Design’s Fall 2020 Undergraduate & Graduate Virtual Convocation!

We know this experience will be very different from what our graduating students, their families, and friends had imagined. We have worked hard to create a meaningful sendoff, and we invite you to join us, wherever you may be right now, in celebrating the accomplishments of our outstanding candidates for bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Iowa State University College of Design. In lieu of walking across the stage, those who submitted a photograph to the College of Design are virtually recognized in the video below. Congratulations to all Undergraduates & Graduates on their accomplishments! 




College of Design Song

Please enjoy our “Love College of Design Song” composed and performed by alumnus Ryan Seiler (BFA 2008 Integrated Studio Arts). This song has become a cherished part of our college convocations.



Student Marshal

Cassandra Frazier of Ankeny will represent the Iowa State University College of Design as its student marshal at the university’s virtual commencement ceremony.

A member of the Dean’s List and top 2 percent of her class for eight semesters at Iowa State, Frazier will graduate summa cum laude with a bachelor of architecture and a minor in sustainability. Frazier will get married in January and plans to pursue an architecture position “and start using my degree to make a positive impact on the world.”
