The Student Activities Board is hosting its first Candlelight Ceremony for all of the seniors who are graduating this May.

The event will be at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday on the lawn in front of the Main Building.

There will be two speakers, UK alumnus and Kentucky Rep. Ryan Quarles and Tim Tracy, the dean of the College of Pharmacy and UK’s interim provost. During the ceremony, seniors will light candles and learn the alma mater.

They also will receive a pin bearing the words “see blue” that can be worn during the graduation ceremony.

“The ceremony is a celebration of their time at UK,” said Micaha Dean, the director of traditions for the Student Activities Board, who will act as an emcee for the ceremony.

After the candle lighting there will be cupcakes and cookies available for post-ceremony socialization.
