in the ceremonial hooding. Doctoral degree candidates are seated on stage and will
be hooded first by the dean of the graduate school and their advisor. Following the
hooding of the doctoral degree candidates, each college will be called to line up
to be hooded. Hooding will be performed by the dean of the graduate school and your
college dean. Once hooded, proceed across stage and return to your seat in the auditorium.
