Donning of the Stoles CeremonyPosted: The Donning of the Stoles ceremony for those students graduating in Spring 2015 will be held on Friday, May 8th at 3:00 p.m. in Sherrill Center, Mountain View Room.
The Donning of the Stoles ceremony is a time in which students of diverse backgrounds have their accomplishments recognized and their achievements applauded. Various key people from across the campus community take this opportunity to explain the tradition of the ceremony and its importance, as well as their pride in this year's graduating class. Students' friends and/or families have the opportunity to speak to and about the student, telling others of the student's accomplishments, how proud they are of him or her, and giving well wishes for the future. The speaker then drapes the stole over the student's shoulders, symbolizing embracing the past and welcoming the future.
This is a wonderful event and we hope that faculty and staff will join us for this celebration. There will be a reception immediately following the ceremony. If you have any questions, contact Dahlia Hylton.
