Presentation of Hoods

The Graduate Advisor for each degree will lead the hood recipients across the platform. The Graduate Advisors will first present a card identifying the academic major to the reader at the microphone, and then conduct the candidates across the platform to receive their hoods. The Vice President for Academic Affairs will read the name cards. Ms. Linda Phillips will assist the readers.

Platform party members who are hood recipients should excuse themselves and join the presentation line when they see their academic areas approach the platform. These graduation candidates should then process through the receiving line and rejoin the platform party. Please accept the direction of the Ceremony Assistants as they help with this process.
