The Trinity College Chapel
Reception to follow on the Quadrangle
(rain location: Washington Room, Mather Hall)
Following World War II, President Funston encouraged the reestablishment of the College’s academic pageantry, which had been curtailed during the war. Matriculation and the Book Ceremony for first-year students were both brought back, and, in the spring of 1950, Honors Day was added as a new ceremony. Honors Day was intended to be an occasion when all Trinity prizes and awards—with the exception of those given out at Commencement—could be celebrated in the presence of the entire College community.
