About the Graduation Celebration

Each year, the College of the Arts honors its graduates with a special ceremony to celebrate their accomplishments at PSU. Faculty and staff, friends and family gather to cheer the graduates and remember the year’s achievements in the arts.

At the celebration, master’s degree recipients will receive special hoods to symbolize their advanced degrees. The color of the regalia—hoods, gowns and tassels—symbolizes the field of scholarship.

This event is separate from the PSU commencement.
