Recognition Week Events
Recognition Week is the highlight of the Chautauqua season for those of us who are affiliated with the CLSC in any way.
Sunday is a morning Baccalaureate and an evening Vigil Service for the incoming class.
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.
New graduates, who are now officially alumni, are treated to a luncheon on the lawn at The Literary Arts Center at Alumni Hall. Tickets for guests of the new graduates are available for $15 each and may be purchased here.
Wednesday evening is reserved for the Guild Gala. All members of the Guild of Seven Seals are invited to attend the gala where, along with dinner, an annual meeting of Guild members is held. Gala tickets are $15 and are available for purchase here.
Thursday, a luncheon is held for Guild Grads who are moving up another level in the Guild. Grads are invited to attend at no cost. Grads may purchase guest tickets for $15 each here.
Dates, times, and locations of these events are on the full calendar.
