                   The chaos that surrounds Commencement often gets in the way of
                   expressing gratitude to everyone who has played an important role in
                   your time at Wingate. The Office of Alumni Relations invites you to join
                   us for a Farewell Celebration, open to our entire campus community, that
                   will give you the opportunity to connect with those who have made your
                   experience at Wingate special. Join us for refreshments, celebration, and
                   giving thanks before Baccalaureate.

                   Baccalaureate is a centuries-old tradition of reflection, contemplation
                   and worship that is traditionally held the day before commencement
                   ceremonies. Graduates may honor those individuals-- students, faculty,
                   and staff-- who have contributed to their journey of faith during their
                   years at Wingate.
