CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi honored around 150 students for their achievements during the summer 2013 College of Nursing and Health Sciences (COHNS) Recognition Ceremony on Friday, Aug. 9, in the Performing Arts Center.   

The ceremony included the hooding of 24 master’s degree students and a pinning ceremony for all undergraduate nursing students who had earned their degrees.  

“As educators, we get to celebrate in the students’ successes, both graduate and undergraduate,” said Dr. Eve Layman, Associate Dean of the COHNS.  “Lifelong education is considered a professional responsibility that we want to share with others.”

The ceremony not only recognized the students’ degree completion, but also recognized their family, friends, and educators for supporting the graduates during their journey to success.

The hooding part of the ceremony has historic roots.  By placing the hood over the students’ heads, professors symbolically welcome them as fellow scholars. In modern times, the hood’s colors represent a graduate’s university and major. The COHNS hoods are apricot in color.
