Class Day

The Class Day ceremony is planned and presented by the members of the senior class. Although it varies from year to year, the event traditionally gives seniors an opportunity to acknowledge publicly achievements and contributions of members of the class and University community.

The program includes the awarding of various prizes to classmates, student speeches, honorary class member inductions, a guest speaker selected by the class, and remarks by President  Christopher L. Eisgruber.


9:30 a.m. Seniors assemble for Class Day held on Cannon Green.

10:00 a.m. Class Day procession begins (from the Brown-Dod courtyard).

10:30 a.m. Ceremony begins. A picnic lunch on Alexander Beach follows the ceremony.


Guests must be seated by 10:00 a.m. when the senior procession begins.


Each senior receives 4 guest tickets

Severe Weather

In the event of severe weather, seniors assemble in the chapel. Guests will be directed to simulcast sites, which are air conditioned and are easy to access for guests with disabilities.
