Celebrating Commencement

After years of hard work and dedication, Capitol College graduates walked across the stage on May 16, 2009 at Capitol's 82nd Commencement ceremony. Our graduates received their various degrees and honors in front of a large crowd filled with family, friends, and members of the Capitol community. Notable speakers included former United States Air Force pilot and NASA astronaut, Colonel Paul S. Lockhart, who spoke to graduates about the importance of life decisions; Dean Helen Barker, who presented William P. Littleton, Jr. with the Marilyn and Seymour Levenson Memorial Award; and Melody Ford, Douglas Daniels, and Christopher T. Blegan, who presented the senior class gift. Graduates who want to remember this important day in their lives are invited to utilize several commemorative keepsake options the college offers.
georgeGraduates' Reception
A record number of new graduates attended this year's Graduates' Reception on May 15, 2009 in the atrium of the McGowan Academic Center. A Mardi Gras theme, complete with spicy Cajun-inspired food, encouraged many party-goers to wear festive masks and their brightest colors in celebration of the impending graduation ceremony the following morning. Many graduate students greeted staff and faculty face-to-face for the first time, after completing their degree online. A special thanks from the Capitol community to everyone who participated!
