Recognition Week Events
Recognition Week, held annually during Week Six, is the highlight of the Chautauqua season for those who are affiliated with the CLSC in any way.
Sunday, a morning Baccalaureate Service in the Amp and an evening Vigil Service is held for the incoming class. Following the Vigil, the class is treated to a cookie and punch reception in Alumni Hall.
Wednesday is Recognition Day. The day starts with a parade from Bestor Plaza. The parade includes a band, the grand marshal, the Gate Keeper, and prior classes parading behind their class banners. It’s a very colorful and highly visible event. The parade ends in the Grove, as alumni begin to assemble in the Hall of Philosophy for the Recognition Day ceremony.
Following the ceremony, alumni assemble into their classes again and parade along the lakeshore to the Amphitheater where we cheer on and welcome the new class into the morning lecture.
Wednesday evening is reserved for the Alumni Gala. This event will recognize the graduates of the Class of 2023, as well as Guild members who have attained a new level in the Guild for 2023. The Gala will be held at the Chautauqua Golf Club clubhouse from 5:00 - 8:00 PM. Tickets will be available on line or at the front desk of Alumni Hall beginning approximately July 1.
Dates, times, and locations are on the full calendar.
