6 7 DECEMBER 2014 COMMENCEMENT DECEMBER 2014 COMMENCEMENT Commencement Speaker Robert Daino President and Chief Executive Officer WCNY Public Media With an entrepreneurial spirit that is creating a new model for public broadcasting, Mr. Daino has made WCNY a dynamic force for positive change both in the Central New York community and in the public media industry nationally. The station’s new Broadcast and Education Center in Syracuse’s Near Westside neighborhood is an anchor for the revitalization of this once vibrant industrial district. The facility is designed to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design platinum standards. It incorporates a state-of-the-art Education Center that offers a variety of hands-on programs for area schoolchildren, including a co-curricular experience that gives students the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge while running businesses in a simulated city called Enterprise America. At the new center, Mr. Daino launched Centralcast, which makes WCNY a hub for public broadcasting in the Northeast. The first collaboration of its kind within the PBS system, Centralcast delivers content for all public broadcasting stations in New York and New Jersey as well as Philadelphia, Charlotte and many other stations across the country, reaching more than 20 percent of the nation’s PBS viewers.

Unlike traditional courses, which present material from a single field of study, Honors Program courses are multi-disciplinary, drawing ideas and information from many fields and addressing concerns common to all the disciplines. In addition to Honors core requirements and all the requirements in their majors, Honors Program students must also meet requirements in laboratory science and a foreign language and complete an Honors Thesis, in which they explore a topic in some depth. The following students from the Class of 2014, wearing silver tassels, are completing the requirements for the SUNY Oswego College Honors Program:Lindsey Frazer Rachel Johnston Megan Kale Thomas KlineTrumpeters announce the beginning of the commencement ceremony.

Previously, he was a president, officer and founder of a variety of clubs and organizations on campus. Upon graduation, the Binghamton native plans to pursue a career in management consulting and then return to school and obtain a master’s degree in organizational leadership and a doctorate in leadership studies. This will allow him to chase his dream of becoming an executive team coach and leadership consultant while teaching leadership courses and conducting research for publication.

In 1998 Ms. Enwright became the department’s first campus public safety officer, which put her in the role of desk officer, responsible for communications services and dispatching. In 2002 she added the responsibilities of administrative assistant to her duties.

22 23 DECEMBER 2014 COMMENCEMENT DECEMBER 2014 COMMENCEMENT Academic TraditionsThe Commencement Setting — The December 2014 Commencement marks the first graduation ceremony to be held in the newly named Marano Campus Center in honor of the late Lorraine E. and Nunzio C. Marano in recognition of a $7.5 million gift to the college. The gift from the estate of Lorraine E. Marano is the largest private donation in the college’s long history.The Academic Procession — The centuries-old pageantry of the academic procession dates from ancient traditions rooted in the early universities. Since the clergy were in charge of the first academic ceremonies, they followed the familiar order of religious processions.The Tradition of Academic Attire — Caps, gowns and hoods worn at college and university functions date from the Middle Ages. Monks and students of that time wore them to keep warm in the damp, drafty halls of learning. From these practical origins they have developed into the accepted garb which symbolizes scholarly achievement. Baccalaureate gowns have a long, pleated front with shirring across the shoulders and back. They are primarily distinguished by flowing sleeves pointed at the fingertips. These gowns may be worn open or closed. The master’s gown is worn open and the sleeve is cut so that the forearm comes through a slit just above the elbow. The lining of the hood is satin and the color represents the school conferring the degree. The velvet border color represents the discipline in which the degree was earned. Doctoral gowns are traditionally worn open, but either open or closed is acceptable. They carry broad, velvet panels down the front and three velvet bars on the full, round sleeves. This velvet trim ming may be either black or the color distinctive of the degree. Mortarboards or caps worn with baccalaureate and master’s gowns generally have black tassels. The tassel of the doctoral cap is usually made of gold bullion. The doctoral hood gives color and meaning to the academic cos tume. Its silk lining bears the color of the institution conferring the degree. The hood is bordered with velvet of a prescribed width and color to indicate the field of learning to which the degree pertains.The College Medallion is worn by the SUNY Oswego president as a symbol of authority at all official ceremonies such as Commencement and Honors Convocation. Oswego is represented in the perfect center of the medallion by a tiny green and gold circle. The dot is located properly on an outline of New York state, which itself surmounts a globe to show the relationship of our institution to the state and the world. Fashioned by Dominic T. DiPasquale of the Art Department for president James Perdue’s 1966 inauguration, the medallion was a gift of the Class of 1966 for the occasion. A wreath of gold leaves surrounds the globe and is circled by a flat band bearing the engraved college name and two dates: 1861, the college founding; and 1948, the founding of the State University of which Oswego was a charter unit. On the clasp above the medallion sits a gold lamp of knowledge, emblematic of a seat of learning. (Photo, page 1.)The College Mace — In medieval times the mace was a weapon of offense with the metal head often heavily spiked. Today it appears chiefly in ceremonial functions of churches, governments, colleges and universities. The head of the Oswego mace holds a jade sphere symbolizing the university of wisdom and knowledge, surrounded by four silver flanges unfolding petal-like without imprisoning the sphere and representing the potential of disciplined imagination, the goal of higher education. The richness of the jade and the rose wood shaft reflect the pomp and solemnity of academic ceremony. A gift of the Class of 1969 for President James Perdue’s inauguration, the Oswego mace has been in use at Commencement ever since. Joseph F. Shoenfelt of the art faculty created its design and silver work, with the rosewood turning by William D. Todd, formerly of the technology faculty.

22 23 DECEMBER 2014 COMMENCEMENT DECEMBER 2014 COMMENCEMENT Academic TraditionsThe Commencement Setting — The December 2014 Commencement marks the first graduation ceremony to be held in the newly named Marano Campus Center in honor of the late Lorraine E. and Nunzio C. Marano in recognition of a $7.5 million gift to the college. The gift from the estate of Lorraine E. Marano is the largest private donation in the college’s long history.The Academic Procession — The centuries-old pageantry of the academic procession dates from ancient traditions rooted in the early universities. Since the clergy were in charge of the first academic ceremonies, they followed the familiar order of religious processions.The Tradition of Academic Attire — Caps, gowns and hoods worn at college and university functions date from the Middle Ages. Monks and students of that time wore them to keep warm in the damp, drafty halls of learning. From these practical origins they have developed into the accepted garb which symbolizes scholarly achievement. Baccalaureate gowns have a long, pleated front with shirring across the shoulders and back. They are primarily distinguished by flowing sleeves pointed at the fingertips. These gowns may be worn open or closed. The master’s gown is worn open and the sleeve is cut so that the forearm comes through a slit just above the elbow. The lining of the hood is satin and the color represents the school conferring the degree. The velvet border color represents the discipline in which the degree was earned. Doctoral gowns are traditionally worn open, but either open or closed is acceptable. They carry broad, velvet panels down the front and three velvet bars on the full, round sleeves. This velvet trim ming may be either black or the color distinctive of the degree. Mortarboards or caps worn with baccalaureate and master’s gowns generally have black tassels. The tassel of the doctoral cap is usually made of gold bullion. The doctoral hood gives color and meaning to the academic cos tume. Its silk lining bears the color of the institution conferring the degree. The hood is bordered with velvet of a prescribed width and color to indicate the field of learning to which the degree pertains.The College Medallion is worn by the SUNY Oswego president as a symbol of authority at all official ceremonies such as Commencement and Honors Convocation. Oswego is represented in the perfect center of the medallion by a tiny green and gold circle. The dot is located properly on an outline of New York state, which itself surmounts a globe to show the relationship of our institution to the state and the world. Fashioned by Dominic T. DiPasquale of the Art Department for president James Perdue’s 1966 inauguration, the medallion was a gift of the Class of 1966 for the occasion. A wreath of gold leaves surrounds the globe and is circled by a flat band bearing the engraved college name and two dates: 1861, the college founding; and 1948, the founding of the State University of which Oswego was a charter unit. On the clasp above the medallion sits a gold lamp of knowledge, emblematic of a seat of learning. (Photo, page 1.)The College Mace — In medieval times the mace was a weapon of offense with the metal head often heavily spiked. Today it appears chiefly in ceremonial functions of churches, governments, colleges and universities. The head of the Oswego mace holds a jade sphere symbolizing the university of wisdom and knowledge, surrounded by four silver flanges unfolding petal-like without imprisoning the sphere and representing the potential of disciplined imagination, the goal of higher education. The richness of the jade and the rose wood shaft reflect the pomp and solemnity of academic ceremony. A gift of the Class of 1969 for President James Perdue’s inauguration, the Oswego mace has been in use at Commencement ever since. Joseph F. Shoenfelt of the art faculty created its design and silver work, with the rosewood turning by William D. Todd, formerly of the technology faculty.
