Under the Oaks is a ceremony hosted each year by the Newcomb College Institute during Commencement week. At Under the Oaks, we honor graduating women, including award recipients, Newcomb Scholars, Mortar Board members, Newcomb grant recipients, Newcomb Alumnae Association award recipients, outstanding faculty, and the Newcomb College Class of 1966. Many cherished traditions from the Newcomb College commencement ceremonies are celebrated at Under the Oaks, including the Daisy Chain, presentation of a second diploma to each member of the Newcomb College Fifty Year Class, wearing of the brown robes, distribution of class pins and mortar board decals, and singing of the Newcomb College Alma Mater. Under the Oaks will be held Friday, May 13, at 2 pm in Dixon Hall with a reception to follow in Dixon Hall.
