Baccalaureate Service

The Baccalaureate service will be held on Friday, May 13, 2016, at 6 p.m. in the Jane M. Smith Memorial Church.


Marshals will arrange the order of the procession and will lead you to your reserved seats.

Seniors will not be permitted to enter the ceremony site once the program has begun.

Note: Honor cords, tassels, medallions, fraternity and sorority kente stoles are not permitted for Baccalaureate. These will be worn during the Commencement exercises.

In the recessional, the platform party will proceed out, followed by the faculty and then the seniors. Men should remove their caps prior to the invocation and place them on their heads just before marching out after the benediction.
