Medallion Ceremony


The Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College Medallion Ceremony is the academic event WHC students experience before attending their official Commencement Ceremony. Each spring, graduating seniors attend this symbolic ceremony where the seniors' theses advisors bestow an Honors College Medallion upon the student. Although we cannot hold this event in person this year, we have created an online Medallion Ceremony for our graduating seniors. The ceremony includes speeches by Interim Dean Timothy Steigenga, Professor Christopher Strain, Student Speaker Kenzie Waldkoetter, and Distinguished Alumni of the Year, Dr. Michel Metzner. We will be mailing WHC mugs, Medallion Certificates, and Medallions to all of our seniors graduating this spring.


Graduating seniors: please complete the Honors College online exit survey.
