Doane announced that 2020 Spring graduates will be able to attend the Winter Commencement ceremony or join the 2021 Spring graduates next May, however, they will not have a ceremony of their own.

May 1 was National College Decision Day, when many students graduating from high school make a final decision about the college they will attend in the fall.


Doane’s sixth annual Doane Athletic Awards Ceremony was broadcasted on Doane Sports Network April 27, at 7 p.m. Each year, these awards honor student athletes who are recognized for most valuable players, scholar-athletes and female and male athletes of the year.

Doane alumni Emily Yokel is in the process of getting her 200-hour yoga teaching certification and will be doing a weekly yoga and mindfulness training for viewers.

Life & Culture

At Doane University, the Arts are quintessential to many of the lives of students. Choir, Band, and Theatre programs are trying to accomodate to the best of their ability.

Students studying abroad are facing a unique set of challenges amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

A handful of students have had to completely cancel their study abroad plans, but most students have rescheduled their trips. 


Dear Administration,

Us graduates have been watching other schools send out packages and letters to celebrate their recent graduates. Some schools even posted all their graduates on their social media for the graduate to share. We feel neglected.

Dear Tiger Writers,

When I first walked the paths of Doane’s campus as a student, there was no Writing Center. It took a dedicated dean, a pioneering group of faculty and a common-sense, compassionate writing teacher to make it happen.
