Class of 2024 Commencement Weekend The college of wooster

The Days Prior

The days leading up to Commencement were full of events on campus that included the Senior Awards Recognition, Senior Music Hour, Baccalaureate Interfaith Service, POSSE celebration, Phi Beta Kappa Initiation, and the President's all-campus picnic.

Multicultural Stoling Ceremony

On Saturday morning before Commencement, the College celebrated the Multicultural Stole Ceremony. The ceremony was inaugurated in May 2014 at The College of Wooster, by the now retired Dean Carolyn L. Buxton, to provide graduating BIPOC students an opportunity to not only celebrate their graduation achievements, but also acknowledge multicultural and international student mentors (faculty, staff, and community partners) who have acted as pillars of support throughout their undergraduate studies. Since then, the ceremony has further grown to provide an opportunity to also recognize and celebrate the academic achievements of international students, and global nomads. Wooster graduates are presented with a stole that is representative of their self-identifying racial, ethnic, cultural and/or national heritage to be worn at Commencement.

Crossing the Stage

The Class of 2024 heard from Wooster alumnus Lamont Paris '96, the head men's basketball coach at the University of South Carolina, who delivered the Commencement Address. Student speakers included Sukriti Chiripal and Tyler Hilbert.
