Welcome to the Kenyon College commencement and convocations Web site. In a time when many other institutions have put aside formal ceremonies beyond graduation as archaic and superfluous, Kenyon has maintained and evolved its five annual celebrations to reflect and reinforce the importance of marking each year the milestones that shape a growing and diverse community, the ways in which we stand apart from other institutions, the things that truly make us Kenyon.
Here, we invite you to explore the traditional celebrations that shape our academic year, the meaning behind the colors and pagentry that mark these occasions, and the answers to the million-and-one questions you may have about 'the big day.'
Take a look and see what all the pomp and circumstance is about!
