Rose and Candle Ceremony

Join us in this celebration of thanksgiving and joy, honoring the new graduates on the completion of their academic career at Barry University.

Date: Friday, December 14th, 2018
Time: 5:30 pm
Location: Cor Jesu Chapel

The Barry University community is invited to 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.

Faculty, Staff and Guests of the graduates are welcome.

All participants should meet in Thompson Hall Lobby at 5:00 p.m.
