This celebration highlights the academic accomplishments of students by allowing them an opportunity to celebrate among their family and friends. It is a cultural celebration that recognizes students of color, LGBTIQ identified students, their allies, and everyone in between by acknowledging their achievements and contributions at Tulane University and to the Office of Multicultural Affairs and The Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity.
The Pinning Ceremony & Lavender Graduation does not take the place of the University Commencement ceremony, but adds a special touch to the University ceremony which takes place Saturday, May 16, 2015. Please invite your close family members, friends, professors, mentors, and other allies who played a significant role in your college career. They are all welcome to join us at this fun and personal graduation celebration. We ask that they RSVP to our office by April 13, 2015 by completing this form and emailing a photo of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org for the slideshow.
As part of the celebration, all graduates are honored with the faces of The O Pin and an Honor Cord.
You will have the opportunity to share your accomplishments and acknowledgements in your own words and dress nicely as we will be taking lots of pictures.
The Meaning of the Pin
The O insignia has many meanings. There are three different faces, with very different and distinct features, but all three are joined at the top of their heads which represents the academic that brought them together here at Tulane and the opportunity to share ideas, differences, and customs.
Congratulations Class of 2014
