Commencement Eve Torchlight Dinner & Ceremony


Commencement Eve Torchlight Dinner 2014

An Oswego Salute to the Class of 2015

Join us for one of Oswego's longest-standing traditions, the annual Torchlight Ceremony. Experience the pageantry as, amid trumpet fanfare, we celebrate the symbolic passing of the Torch of Learning from alumni to our graduating seniors. This once-in-a-lifetime event is their official welcome into the Oswego Alumni Association. It's a tradition the Class of 2015 will share with generations of Oswego graduates who came before them. As voices fill the air with the alma mater in this historic candlelit ceremony, seniors will build memories on the eve of their Commencement that last forever.
