Class Tradition: Senior Cap and Gown Ceremony

The Senior Cap and Gown Ceremony is one of the oldest traditions at Emmanuel College, dating back to the first graduating class.

Dating back to the first graduating class, the Class of 1923, the Senior Cap and Gown Ceremony has historically marked the beginning of the senior year. The ceremony provides an opportunity for seniors to don their caps and gowns and recognizes their status as seniors at Emmanuel.

Each of us listened as she prayed, sang, thought; each pieced together what was meaningful to her. Yet, all of us participated in an advent of Commencement; we accepted again the charge of Christian responsibility, and through this responsibility the hope for peace.
