Graduate College Events General

(for August 2017 and December 2017 graduates)

 

The Graduate College is honored to organize this ceremony to offer doctoral degree recipients, along with faculty mentors, an opportunity to celebrate their achievement. A doctoral degree represents the culmination of years of commitment, dedication, and work.

 

The ceremonial hooding of doctoral degree recipients recognizes their academic achievements and welcomes them into the community of scholars. During the ceremony, the hood with designs that indicate the degree and institution is placed over the student’s head, often by their faculty mentor or another mentor with a doctoral degree.

 

We hope that you’ll join us for the Doctoral Hooding Ceremony to celebrate of all that you’ve accomplished, surrounded by the family, friends, and colleagues who helped you succeed. We look forward to seeing you there.
