The Symbols of Commencement Graduates Academic Regalia: Academic disciplines are noted by color; law is represented as purple. The doctoral gown has bell sleeves with velvet chevrons on the sleeves and velvet on the panels. The hood is bound and edged with purple velvet and lined with green, the official color of Stetson University as the institution conferring the degree. The square cap combines the symbolism of the book and that of a privileged guild. Students graduating with anticipated honors wear a gold tassel on the cap, and others wear a purple tassel denoting the discipline of law. Students wearing purple cords are LL.M. graduates. Gold cords are worn by students graduating with anticipated honors. Student leaders and named award winners are wearing green cords. Students wearing blue cords have earned the William F. Blews Pro Bono Service Award. Co-Valedictorians are wearing gold stoles. The Mace: The Stetson University Mace, used during all commencement ceremonies, is a ceremonial staff used by many academic institutions as a symbol of the right to confer degrees. The Stetson mace, designed by Episcopalian Canon Edward Nason West of the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, New York, was presented to President J. Ollie Edmunds in The Medallion: The President s Medallion, worn at official academic occasions, was first used for the inauguration of President John E. Johns in The silver medallion includes the University Seal embraced by a wreath of laurel. The circular seal, adopted between 1889 and 1891, bears the motto Pro Deo et Veritate ( For God and Truth ) and the Light of Truth resting on the Book of Wisdom. 2 Ceremony Program Processional...
