Hooding Ceremony



The Hooding Ceremony is a special ceremony for Master's degree candidates in which a faculty member invests the hood over the head of the candidate to signify the candidate's sucessful completion of the graduate program.  It is in addition to the university's commencement exercises and in which faculty are dressed in full academic regalia.  The ceremony honors all graduate students who will be receiving their Master's Degree during the university's commencement exercises in a more personal way.  Also, the Dean of the Graduate School personally congratulates each candidate for their academic achievements.  The community is invited to attend especially the candidate's family and friends.
