The College of St. Joseph Baccalaureate Celebration is a non-denominational, interfaith celebration that is a deeply moving, special part of graduation weekend. It is a ceremony to look back on your time here at the College of St. Joseph and to reflect on those that have encouraged you to become the success you are today. This ceremony gives you an opportunity to show your thanks to those people who have made a difference in your journey to your degree.  All graduates are invited to attend. The ceremony takes place as a group, during which you and up to two individuals who have been influential during your college years exchange symbols representing your appreciation and thanks for their contributions in your life.  Many graduates and families find the Baccalaureate Celebration to be a very meaningful and intimate event that occurs during the graduation activities.

It is a favorite event of the campus community, and we hope you and those close to you will join us.  To participate in the celebration, please complete the form below prior to May 13, 2019
