The kente cloth originated in Ghana and the colors on the Chestnut Hill College cloth symbolize growth, energy, wealth and victory (among other things). The ceremony is designed to honor the achievements of our graduates in the School of Undergraduate Studies and to celebrate diversity on campus. Each participating graduate selects someone special to don their kente cloth; this person can be a family member, friend, faculty, staff, coach or anyone who helped them through college.
The ultimate celebration of academic achievement is our Commencement.
