Convocation Procedures


All graduates are invited to participate by holding the torch and giving an appropriate spoken vow—an expression of your heart's purpose. It can be your own words, words of a song, words of scripture, a meaningful quotation, etc. It should not be longer than 30 seconds and should be spoken with sincerity and certainty.

If you will not be present, please notify the Registrar's Office immediately so they can omit your name from the line of march.
