COLORADO SPRINGS, COLORADO – Benjamin Kirchman, of Framingham, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Colorado College.
Kirchman was one of 524 undergraduates to be celebrated virtually by Colorado College on May 31.
The college also awarded 15 Master of Arts in Teaching degrees.

Additionally, Colorado College President Jill Tiefenthaler sent each graduate an individualized congratulatory video, for a total of 539 personalized messages.
An in-person, on-campus Commencement ceremony for the Class of 2020 has been rescheduled for May 30, 2021, and the College is working on raising funds so that all members of the class can attend.
Colorado College is a nationally prominent, four-year liberal arts college that operates on the innovative Block Plan, in which students take one class at a time in intensive three-and-a-half-week segments.
