Samuelson Chapel

Baccalaureate is a religious worship service for all graduates and their families. This worship celebrates a graduate’s degree completion and commends them to God’s blessing and keeping. This worship service includes the celebration of Holy Communion. Graduates wishing to process with fellow graduates line up at the Luther Statue in front of the library by 4:45pm wearing their caps and gowns. Graduates who prefer not to process as well as all families and friends should go directly into Samuelson Chapel. Seating for family and guests is on a first-come, first-seated basis.
