D'Youville College's Interfaith Hooding Service reflects both the religious traditions of the college and the academic degree that each student earns.
At this ecumenical service, each student has the academic hood placed upon them by a faculty member, which represents the student's official entrance into the academic community. The hood itself bears the colors of D'Youville College (red and white), as well as the special colored velvet trim noting your field of academic achievement.
To participate in the Interfaith Hooding Service, graduates must contact Lori Stutzman by Monday, April 13, 2015 at Stutzman@dyc.edu or (716) 829-8100.
