CC Celebrates 34 Graduates at Winter Commencement

Colorado College celebrated the achievements of 34 graduates during its Winter Commencement on Sunday, Dec. 17, in Shove Memorial Chapel. This ceremony marked a significant milestone as part of CC's 150th academic year.

The Commencement address, titled "Now. And then...", was delivered by Professor of English and Director of the Journalism Institute, Steve Hayward. Chaplain Kate Holbrook delivered the invocation and the benediction.

The senior class chose the profound words of American novelist Maxine Hong Kingston as their class motto: "In a time of destruction, create something." This sentiment beautifully reflects the spirit of resilience and creativity that defines this remarkable group of graduates. The motto will be the same for the seniors graduating in May 2024.

Congratulations to the graduates and best wishes for their bright futures ahead!
