[PAST EVENT] Candlelight Ceremony
W&M Class of 2020 Commencement Event
Class of 2020 graduates gather in Wren Yard for the traditional candle-lighting ceremony. Tradition holds that the seniors select three speakers; one faculty member, one administrator and one fellow student each of whom has had a close relationship with the class during their years at William & Mary. The atmosphere is fun and nostalgic, culminating in the illumination of the Wren Yard as light from a Wren Candle is passed from classmate to classmate. And, of course, with candles aloft, we sing the Alma Mater.
