Champs Downtown To Host ‘2020 Graduation’ July 10 Feat. A$AP Ferg

Champs Downtown will host a special celebration for Penn State’s Class of 2020 next month to give them some well-deserved recognition following a less-than-ideal commencement more than a year ago.

The bar will host an in-person party for Class of 2020 graduates at noon on Saturday, July 10, that will let recent alumni wear a cap and gown, walk across the stage, and even have their names called. The after-party will also feature a performance from rapper A$AP Ferg.

Ticket sales for the event will launch on Champs’ LineLeap page Friday, according to a post on its Instagram page. “VIP” packages will include a cap and gown, promotional t-shirt, decorative diploma, and a complimentary cocktail.

Those who’ve been around for a while know A$AP Ferg is no stranger to Penn State and State College. Just a few years ago, he helped headline Movin’ On 2019 and performed at the IM Fields for thousands of students. He’s best known for hit songs like “New Level,” “Plain Jane,” and “Work.”

Although celebrating graduation at a downtown bar probably isn’t what recent alumni had always pictured, it’s arguably better than anything Penn State did for the Class of 2020. The university still hasn’t invited recent grads back to campus despite many promises. The Class of 2021, meanwhile, got to graduate in person at Beaver Stadium this May.
