The SOAC Graduation Ceremony recognizes and celebrates our SOAC students - both majors and minors across our various disciplines. The Karen Hille Phillips Center for the Performing Arts enables our faculty, staff and graduates to come together and celebrate the success of our students in a more intimate setting. Here's a quick run down of a few things that will happen.

  • SOAC Dean Cameron Bennett gives an address and all area Chairs offer remarks
  • All graduating SOAC students are brought on stage by department to be recognized
  • Select awards are presented by some of the departments
  • All graduates are corded (a multi-colored cord is placed around everyone's neck)
  • All graduates are pinned (a small, round pin with the SOAC rune is given to each student)
  • A reception is held with light refreshments¬†
