Inaugural master’s hooding ceremony celebrates graduate candidates

The UW-Whitewater College of Business and Economics held its inaugural master’s hooding ceremony at Timothy J. Hyland Hall on May 12, 2017. The hooding ceremony was a special event to recognize graduate candidates in a more personal way than would be possible at the university’s general commencement. It was also an opportunity to recognize the support of their families and friends, as well as the college’s exceptional faculty and staff.

More than 70 graduate students were hooded in the presence of about 250 guests. Candidates represented the Master of Science in Environmental Safety and Health, Master of Professional Accountancy, and Master of Business Administration programs. The ceremony was followed by a networking reception, where candidates could connect with faculty and fellow students. Degrees were conferred the following day at the university’s spring commencement event.

Congratulations, graduates!
