Baccalaureate

Baccalaureate 2015

For Baccalaureate 2015, President West broke with tradition and delivered his sermon from the floor, without notes.

A time to worship, a time for praise, a time for thanksgiving.  Baccalaureate, held the afternoon prior to Commencement, is a formal worship service that includes the entire College community, including faculty, staff, trustees, and members of the graduating classes (traditional and Adult Degree Completion) and their families.  Hymns, anthems, prayers, and Biblical readings are part of this moving and memorable service that traces its roots back to the 13th century at the University of Cambridge, England. The Baccalaureate sermon is offered each year by the president of the College, a tradition that began in 2012.

Baccalaureate 2016:  Friday, May 13, 5:00 P.M., Ligon Chapel
