• Dec 13: CMSS Donning of the Kente
    Donning (or putting on) of the Kente stole is a rites of passage for students of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds to move to the next chapter in their lives. The Kente cloth is to be worn with graduation regalia. It is made of fabrics from Ghana, woven together intricately with symbolism. We invite undergraduate and graduate students who have participated in programing, a CMSS organization, or have worked in the office to join the ceremony and reception.
