Lavender Graduation 2017: Registration

Thursday, May 4, 2017
5:00-7:00 p.m.

The Lavender Graduation ceremony celebrates our graduating LGBTQ and allied students. First started at the University of Michigan in 1995, the ceremony is now conducted at hundreds of universities nationwide, including Princeton, Duke, MIT, and NYU. The color lavender, adopted by the gay movement in the 1960s, is the main color of Sayville (Gayville), NY. Sayville is near Fire Island, where the veterans of Stonewall hung out. This history of New York is honored during the ceremony as our graduates prepare to make history of their own.

These can include OMA Graduation Cords, King's Crown awards, academic departmental honors, organization awards, and being selected as a senior marshal. Since some of these awards may not be known when you register, we recommend you log-in so that you are able to modify your submission at a later date.
