Each year during Commencement weekend, the Mary Lou Williams Center supports Final Honors, a Black student graduation ceremony and reception, for all affiliated seniors and their families.

A student committee enjoys the opportunity to work on this program annually, securing a keynote speaker, student artists to display varied talents and creating a memory book of pictures from throughout the year with words of encouragement from the graduating seniors' families.

During the Saturday program, students participate by walking across the stage at Page Auditorium, and receiving a special kente cloth stole. Guests of families, campus, and community members attend to extend best wishes and bid farewell.
