  • What is Baccalaureate?

    Posted by:

    Baccalaureate is a non-denominational ceremony held at Goodhart Theater on Bryn Mawr College's campus a few days before graduation. Unlike the massive commencement exercises held at the Finneran Pavilion, Baccalaureate offers a quieter, more intimate opportunity to pause and reflect on this rite of passage, hear members of the graduating class offer advice to one another, reflect on their years spent together and enjoy each other's many talents. This year Baccalaureate will take place on Sunday, June 9th 6 p.m. 
    The average length of the program is 1.5 hours.
