List of current students set to graduate in June.
Below are general announcements for all graduates. Please visit the Graduates page to view academic information, an updated list of proposed candidates for degrees, and other important information.
All candidates for degrees should meet at Commencement Grove on Friday, June 16, at 11:00 a.m. (doughnuts at 10:30 a.m.). Once there, take a seat near the front so rehearsal can begin promptly. You will then receive further instructions.
All A.S. and B.S. candidates for nursing degrees should meet in the Church Sanctuary on Friday, June 16, promptly at 1:00 p.m.
Those who participated in Senior Recognition already have their regalia. All others should obtain their caps and gowns from the bookstore by Thursday, June 15. To reduce wrinkling, hang the gowns as soon as possible. If ironing is necessary, use a cool iron. The gowns belong to you to keep or dispose.
Students, faculty, and staff in academic regalia may wear only approved honor cords, medallions, and stoles, as described in the Commencement program, or, in the case of faculty and staff, academic honors earned at other institutions. Graduates may also wear appropriate leis given to them.
Seniors will present the program in the Sanctuary, but there will not be a processional. Those who must leave early to get their regalia for use during the Baccalaureate service should sit in an area from which they can leave inconspicuously.
Please be in line with regalia adjusted at 11:00 a.m. and ready to march into the Sanctuary at 11:15 a.m. Candidates for graduation should assemble in the area between Paulin Hall and the Church in two single lines, with the senior officers at the head of each. Students may choose the order in which they march, except that the two lines should be of equal length, with those wearing white gowns coming at the end of each line. Men, please remember to remove your caps during prayer.
All candidates for A.S. or B.S. degrees in nursing should meet in the Fireside Room by 3:00 p.m. to prepare for the service at 4:00 p.m. Participation in the Nursing Graduate Recognition Service is required. Those unable to attend must obtain written permission from the Chair of the Department of Nursing and Health Sciences no later than one week before graduation.
A group picture will be taken at 8:30 a.m. on the lawn at McReynolds Hall. Immediately following the group picture, seniors are to line up for the processional on the sidewalk at McReynolds Hall. Each person must be in regalia (tassel on left) and positioned in the line of march as specified during the Friday practice. It is important that the line order correspond with the order in which the seniors present themselves for diplomas.
