 COMMENCEMENT CEREMONY
The exercises of the ninety-ninth Commencement are enacted today at the
· University of Kentucky. The counterpart of the pageantry is enacted each year
on campuses all over the world. lt is the solemn climax and recognition of the
graduates’ years of study and preparation for responsibility.
To help spectators understand the significance of the ceremony, the follow-
ing description is furnished:
PROCESSION
The procession, which formed on the Avenue of Champions, will enter the
Coliseum through the south entrance, lt is led by the University Marshal and fol-
lowed by the Color Guard carrying the national and state flags and the University
. banner. The University Marshal is bearing the ceremonial mace, emblematic of
  the authority of the State and the University. Led by the Student Marshals the
  candidates march behind the identification banner of the respective colleges which
  recommended them for their degrees.
l
The order of march is as follows:
l The candidates for advance degrees, to include
l College of Dentistry
l College of Law
l College of Medicine
l
The candidates for degrees:
l College of Arts and Sciences
College of Agriculture and Home Economics
{ College of Engineering
  College of Education
College of Commerce
College of Pharmacy
College of Nursing
School of Architecture
As the candidates reach their seats the members of the faculty of the University
of Kentucky march into the Coliseum wearing the colorful hoods of the colleges
and universities from which they were graduated. The climax of the procession
brings to the platform the Trustees of the University, the Deans of the various col-
leges, honorary degree recipients, alumni award recipients, Sullivan award re·
cipients, the Vice Presidents, guests, state officials, and finally the President of the
Q University. As a badge of office the President wears a jewel emblematic of the his-
 
.s
i
i

 ' tory of the State and of the University. The Trustees of the University can be
identified by their blue gowns with white panels. They wear blue caps with blue
tassels.
ACADEMIC ATTIRE
All candidates for degrees and those who hold these degrees, including Uni- A
versity officials, faculty, and visiting dignitaries, are attired in traditional cap and
gown. The basic color for most caps and gowns is formal black. However, re-
cipients of different degrees wear distinctive tassels on their cap (called Mortar P
Boards), and hoods, draped down the back of the gown, of various hues. V
CAPS Il
Candidates for Bachelors' or Masters' degrees wear the regulation cap with the
tassel appropriate to the school or division from which they are being graduated,
with the exception of those who already hold Doctors’ degrees who are privileged
to wear gold tassels. The authorized list of tassels follows: S.
Arts and Sciences——Black Engineering—Orange
Commerce-Drab Law—Purple lr
Agricu|ture—Maize Medicine-—Green
Home Economics—Maroon Nursing—Apricot G
Dentistry——Lilac Pharmacy—Olive Green _
Education—Light Blue Architecture——Brown R
GOWNS A
The gown for the Bachelor’s degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to C
be worn closed. The gown for the Master’s degree has an oblong sleeve, open at i
the wrist, like the others. The sleeve base hangs down in the traditional manner. . C
The rear part of its oblong shape is square cut and the front part has an arc cut  
away. The gown is designed and supplied with fasteners that it may be worn  
open or closed. The gown for the Doctor’s degree has a bel|—shaped sleeve on   p
which are three velvet bars (usually black but sometimes other colors depending  
on the degree). l
` C
HOODS
The Bache|or’s hood is rather short with a narrow velvet edging of the appro-
priate color (see list under tassels) and a lining in the color or colors of the institu-
tion-—b|ue and white at Kentucky. C
The Master’s hood is considerably longer, has a wider velvet edging, and ex-
poses more of the lining. The outside velvet trim color designates the degree A
which the person is receiving. `
The Doctor’s hood is easily recognized by the width of the velvet edging, the  
wide panels at either side, the greater length, and the full exposure of the lining. » BI
The colors of the edging most frequently seen are blue for philosophy, green for
medicine, and purple for laws; the colors for the honorary Doctors’ degrees are
purple for laws, white for letters, and golden yellow for science.
Candidates for honorary degrees do not wear the hood until after the degree
has been conferred; part of the ceremony of admitting a candidate to his Rl
honorary degree consists in his being formally invested with the hood.
