Cultural Graduation Celebrations
There are five unique cultural graduation celebrations dedicated to honoring Occidental graduates. Asian Pacific Islander Graduation, Black Graduation, Latino/a Graduation, Lavender Graduation, and First Generation Reception.
Cultural Graduation Celebrations are an opportunity for smaller groups to come together and acknowledge students’ accomplishments. For many underrepresented and first-generation students, a college diploma represents a long road marked by hard work and success – not just for the individual students, but also for their family, friends and supporters. These smaller events provide more intimate settings for students to share these personal milestones with their communities.
The Office of Intercultural Affairs partners with cultural organizations to coordinate Asian Pacific Islander Graduation, Black Graduation, Latino/a Graduation, Lavender Graduation and the First Generation Reception. Although they are not designed to replace the traditional graduation ceremonies hosted at Occidental College, these events bring together family and friends while celebrating the rich diversity of our campus.
