A baccalaureate is a celebration that honors the graduating senior class.

Historical Perspective and Babson’s Version and Implementation​

The service derives from the medieval European custom of presenting the candidates for the degree of bachelor (bacca) with laurels (lauri) of sermonic oration. The baccalaureate ceremony is a service of worship in celebration of and thanksgiving for lives dedicated to learning and wisdom.

Babson’s Baccalaureate takes place on the Friday before Commencement and is a multifaith ceremony. Students, staff, faculty, and the Office of Faith and Service deliver this ceremony and share their reflections and blessings as the graduates get ready to embark on their new adventure.
