Baccalaureate Mass, a tradition at Catholic institutions to celebrate and honor student success, dates back to medieval times. All graduates, regardless of religious affiliation, are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Undergraduate students will receive their hoods in the color of their academic program at the Undergraduate Hooding Ceremony. Gowns (but not caps) are worn by all students, faculty, and staff. Undergraduates should carry their hoods.

Students should meet in Berchmans gym at 5 p.m.

Following the ceremony, the Senior Slide Show and Reception will take place in the Mary Dooley College Center Dining Room. All are invited to the reception.
