Rev. Mark Schaefer
I’ve been to my share of graduations in my own academic career and in working on this campus for nearly nineteen years now. And I’ve noticed a few things in that time. One of the things I’ve noticed the most around this time of year has to do with what we even call the thing that we’re doing. I have never heard a university, college, or institution of higher learning refer to this weekend’s festivities as anything other than commencement. From high school to college to grad school to law school to seminary every single conferral of degrees as a commencement.
On occasion, religious observance necessitates an accommodation for students pertaining to academic, housing, or food related purposes. If you have a need for such a religious accommodation, you can submit a request through Kay.
