Processional

Traditionally, the processional begins with the candidates for graduation and ends with the highest ranking officer at the institution, follwed by an institutional symbol, such as the mace. At Pacific, the college and schools are able to establish their own processional tradition. The Commencement Ceremony follows traditional academic processional guidelines.
