Iacocca Hall, Wood Dining Room
111 Research Dr., Bethlehem, PA 18015

This special celebration is a time in which students of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds have their accomplishments recognized and their achievements applauded. Various key people from across the campus community take this opportunity to explain the tradition of the ceremony and its importance, as well as their pride in this year's graduating class.

Students' friends and/or families have the opportunity to speak to and about the student, telling others of the student's accomplishments, how proud they are of them, and giving well wishes for the future. The speaker then drapes the stole over the student's shoulders, symbolizing an embracing past and a welcoming future.
