In this celebration of mentorship that started in 2005, students of color honor mentors who have helped them succeed. The ceremony is both a celebration and a moment for reflection.

It is an opportunity for the seniors to name (and thank!) a mentor who played a key role in their persistence to graduation (i.e., advisor, dining staff, facilities staff, faculty, residential life staff, administrative staff, coach). The heart of the program is the moment of gratitude as the mentor presents the student with a stole (kente or satin), and the student offers the mentor a flower in exchange.

Graduating seniors who would like to participate in the ceremony must complete the Stoling Ceremony submission form by Friday, April 22, 11:59 pm.

All those who are registered to participate in the Stoling Ceremony must attend a MANDATORY rehearsal on Thursday, May 18, from 9:00am-12pm at Chapin Auditorium. BREAKFAST WILL BE PROVIDED.
