The Final Honors Ceremony is held annually to honor the accomplishments of members of the graduating class. It was first instituted in 1993, and allows seniors and their families to commemorate their shared experiences and preserve their heritage within the realms of the University. It is also the time at which graduating seniors receive Kente cloth stoles presented to them by key faculty and administrators who are dear to the class. Aside from Commencement, Final Honors is truly the final event where graduating seniors of African descent and their allies are able to gather, socialize and reflect on their years at the University. It gives family, friends, and mentors, who have played important roles in their undergraduate career a chance to recognize and honor the graduates' successes.
