Medallion Ceremony

The Honors College recognizes graduating seniors at a special Medallion Ceremony, held at the end of each semester, usually the Friday of graduation week. Each ceremony includes a guest speaker and a student speaker. The Honors College Deans confer each graduate with an Honors College medallion, which can be worn during other graduation events on campus.

Graduating seniors must register for the cermony in advance.
