A distinguished speaker is invited to deliver the baccalaureate address. Students must appear in cap and gown 30 minutes prior to the service. Led by Junior Marshals, the double column procession enters the south door of the Chapel. Caps are worn during the processional, but are removed just before the invocation. After the benediction, caps are put back on for the recessional, in which students are led out of the Chapel, two pews at a time, using both aisles.
A small number of family and friends will find room to sit in the Chapel for the service. Your guests should arrive early if they hope to find a seat. We shall broadcast the service outside the Chapel to guests who may choose to be seated in the Quad.
2013 Ceremony Saturday, May 18: 2:30 p.m.
Our baccalaureate speaker in 2013 will be the Very Reverend Dr. Jane Shaw
