Mark your calendar now for a Service of Celebration in honor of our 2015 Graduates.
The 2015 Commencement activities will begin on Friday evening, May 1, with the Baccalaureate ceremony at 4:30 p.m. in Bast Gym. This celebratory event is an important part of Commencement exercises and is an occasion for thanksgiving as our students complete their educational program.
Baccalaureate begins with an academic procession of faculty, administrators and seniors. The worship service, lasting about one hour, includes music, prayers and readings. The Rev. Christopher M. Bowen, Dean of the Chapel, will be the speaker.
Baccalaureate will be followed by the President's Reception for Graduates and Families as well as several academic departmental receptions. These events will be held on the Roanoke College campus.
Plan now to arrive on campus early Friday, May 1, in order to participate in all the weekend activities.
