*PLEASE NOTE:  A letter was mailed to the permanent address of each candidate for graduation on Monday, November 17th regarding new graduation information.  Due to the increase in December graduation participants, we have instituted a "Priority Seating" section in Ransdell Chapel.  Enclosed in the letter you will find four Priority Seating Tickets available to your family and friends.  This does not mean seating will be limited to four guests, but you can determine who has a reserved seat.  All other guests can sit in the general seating area, as available.  Please note that unclaimed Priority Seating seats will be available to the general public ten minutes before the ceremony begins.

Graduate Walk: Bearing the Light of a Calling Found

Candidates participating in the 2:00 ceremony need to check in at the Davenport Student Commons at 1:15 p.m. to receive name card and to line up for the graduate walk.

Candidates participating in the 4:00 ceremony need to check in at the Davenport Student Commons at 3:15 p.m. to receive name card and to line up for the graduate walk.

In 2001 graduates placed a stone marker in front of Montgomery Library and, along with President Carter, initiated the Graduate Walk.  Students touched the stone as they passed, signifying the lasting impact that Campbellsville University had made on their lives.

Graduates are invited to join Dr. Carter and other faculty members to participate in this memorable event.
