Commencement December 2013: Rose and Candle Ceremony

Broad Center, Barry University Main Campus
Friday, December 13, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.

All graduates are invited and encouraged to attend the Rose and Candle Ceremony. The Rose and Candle Ceremony is a traditional ceremony at Barry which attempts to symbolize the bonds of friendship and sending forth of graduates. Graduates exchange a candle, the symbol of wisdom and knowledge, with a Barry underclassman of their choice. In return, graduates receive a rose as a symbol of love and friendship. Graduates should wear academic robes (no hoods or caps). Those serving as roses should wear business dress attire. Guests of the graduates are welcome.

All participants should meet in Thompson Hall Lobby at 6:00 p.m.
