This is a formal event and all seniors in all departments will be wearing academic regalia and enter by procession.This event will allow each candidate for graduation to be honored during the ceremony.   

There will be a rehearsal in Turner Auditorium for the Commissioning Ceremony on Thursday, February 7th, 2:50pm-3:30pm.  This rehearsal will be held at the end of Student Teaching Seminar Class. The rehearsal will provide you with information concerning the event. 

This is a required university experience.  All School of Education majors (Psychology, Social Work, and undergraduate Education majors who are planning to teach at the BK, elementary, and secondary levels) are expected to attend.  You will need to purchase your robe at the bookstore by the end of January.
