Walk Across Campus
The Walk Across Campus immediately precedes the commencement ceremony. It currently begins with the graduates gathering in front of the Wren Building for a brief ceremony, walking through the building's central hallway, and finally walking across campus to William and Mary Hall where the commencement ceremony is held. The walk across campus is led by the outgoing Student Association president who carries the College Mace and by the faculty marshalls. It was first held in May 1978.
