These banners hanging in the Werkmeister Humanities Reading Room in Dodd Hall on the FSU campus are carried by representatives of the different colleges and schools during the processional at graduation ceremonies which are held at the end of each semester during the academic year. The students who are graduating during the ceremony walk behind their respective banner wearing their caps and gowns. I have been to two of these graduation ceremonies in the past few years, one for my daughter, who graduated from the College of Music and one for my son, who graduated from the College of Visual Arts, Theatre and Dance. I was one proud Mama! I am happy to say that both of my kids are doing well in their chosen fields. My daughter is the band director at her old high school and my son is a graphic designer for the State of Florida.
