Pinning Ceremony

Each year, all students graduating with a bachelor’s degree in education are invited to participate in a pinning ceremony, which takes the same week as graduation. The ceremony marks the occasion when students are welcomed into the teaching profession; it is a symbolic ceremony denoting a milestone in the educator’s life.
