Baccalaureate 2024

We invite all graduates, families, friends, faculty, and staff to reflect on the meaning of the college experience and the transition of commencement through responsive readings, prayers from many religious and ethnic traditions in different languages, music, and reflections from a graduate and a faculty or staff member.
