The exercises of the one hundred thirty-first annual commencement are enacted today at the
University of Kentucky. The counterpart of the pageantry is enacted each year on campuses all
over the world. It is the solemn climax and recognition of the graduates' years of study and
preparation for responsibility. ,
A description of the academic pageantry is provided for your interest and information. 3
The procession, which forms on the Avenue of Champions (Euclid Avenue) and enters the _
Coliseum through the four corners of the floor, is led by the University Marshal whose position _
is in front of the stage. The University Marshal bears the ceremonial mace, emblematic of the tl
endorsement of the State and the University. Led by Assistant Marshals, the candidates march
behind the identification banner of the respective colleges which recommended them for their
The candidates for advanced degrees enter the floor from the southeast door (see diagram,
next page); candidates for advanced degrees are from the following:
The Graduate School (doctoral and masters candidates),
College of Law,
College of Medicine,
College of Dentistry, and ‘
College of Pharmacy.
Entering through the southwest door (see diagram, next page) are candidates for degrees from
the following:
College of Education,
College of Nursing, n
College of Human Environmental Sciences,
College of Communications and Information Studies, and
College of Fine Arts.
Entering through the northeast corner (see diagram, next page) are candidates for degrees
from the following:

Entering through the northwest corner (see diagram, next page) are candidates for degrees
from the following:
College of Agriculture,
Carol Martin Catton College of Business and Economics,
College of Allied Health Professions,
College of Social Work, and

As the candidates reach their seats, the members of the faculty of the University of Kentucky  
proceed into the Coliseum, entering the floor from the southeast door and wearing the colorful  
hoods of their disciplines (see description of colors on page 6) and of the colleges and  
universities from which they were graduated. The climax of the procession brings to the  
platform the members of the Board of Trustees of the University, the Deans of the various  
colleges, honorary degree recipients, the Chancellors, the Vice Presidents, and other University
officials, and guests. The President of the University and the Chairperson of the Board of
Trustees, upon greetings from the University Marshal, lead this distinguished group to the
platform in two columns from the southwest door. The Trustees of the University can be
identified by their blue gowns with white panels; they also wear blue caps with gold tassels.

All candidates for degrees and those who hold these degrees, including University
officials, faculty, and visiting dignitaries, are attired in traditional cap and gown. The _
basic color for most caps and gowns is formal black. However, recipients of different `
degrees wear distinctive tassels on their caps and hoods of various hues draped i
down the backs of the gowns. I
Candidates for Bachelor’s and Master’s 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 Doctor’s degrees and are privileged to  
wear gold tassels. Except during the positioning of the Colors, and the playing of the  
"Star Spangled Banner" and "America the Beautiful", men in academic regalia are
requested to wear their caps. The authorized list of tassel colors follows:
Arts and Sciences: Dentistry - Lilac
Arts — White Architecture - Blue Violet
Sciences - Gold Allied Health Professions - Light Green
Agriculture - Maize Human Environmental Sciences - Maroon
Engineering - Orange Social Work - Citron
Law - Purple Communications and Information Studies:
Education — Light Blue Communications - Silver/ Gray
Business and Economics - Drab Library Sciences — Lemon
Pharmacy - Olive Green Iournalism - Crimson V
Medicine - Green Fine Arts - Brown
Nursing - Apricot
The gown for the Bachelor’s degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to be worn
closed. The gown for the Master’s degree has an oblong sleeve, open at the wrist, like
the others. The sleeve base hangs down in the traditional manner. 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 so that it may be worn open or closed. The
gown for the Doctor’s degree has a bell-shaped sleeve on which are three velvet bars
(usually black but sometimes other colors, depending on the degree).
The Bachelor’s hood is rather short with a narrow velvet edging of the appropriate
color (see list under tassels) and a lining in the color or colors of the institution - blue
and white at Kentucky.
The Master’s hood is considerably longer, has a wider velvet edging, and exposes  
more of the lining. The outside velvet trim color designates the degree which the i
person is receiving. i
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. The colors ·
of the edging most frequently seen are blue for philosophy, green for medicine, .
purple for laws; the colors for the honorary Doctor’s degrees are purple for laws,
white for arts / letters/ humanitites, 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 or her honorary
degree consists in the candidate being formally invested with the hood.

.; Oh Say! can you see, by the dawn's early light,
  What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?
 · Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro` the perilous fight,
 i O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
 i And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
 I Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
  Oh, say does that Star—Spangled Banner yet wave
_ O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties, Above the fruited plain!
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood, From sea to shining sea!
