Commencement is here

Another academic year has ended, and seniors have begun their often bittersweet last week on campus. After finals have been taken and papers turned in, belongings packed and good-byes said, two ceremonies remain as the capstone of their college career.

On Friday, May 11, Baccalaureate 2012 will be held beginning at 5 p.m. at the Central Moravian Church. The evening's featured speaker will be Craig Atwood, associate professor of Moravian theology and director of the center for Moravian studies at Moravian Theological Seminary.

The next day, Commencement will begin at 10 a.m. in the outdoor quadrangle behind Haupert Union Building (HUB) on the Main Street campus. The academic procession will begin approximately 20 minutes before the start of the ceremony. Commencement speakers will be Anna Whetstone, giving the statement of the bachelor's graduates, Joan Snyder, giving the statement of the master’s graduates, and Gary Olson, professor of political science, giving the statement to the graduates on behalf of the faculty.  This ceremony will formally conclude the 270th academic year at Moravian with all the appropriate pomp and circumstance.
