ABOUT THE TRADITION
On the 50th anniversary of its first graduating class, University of Mobile returned its graduation ceremony to campus and started a new graduation tradition on Saturday, May 13, 2017.
Diplomas were awarded to approximately 250 graduates at a ceremony starting at 10 a.m. in front of Weaver Hall on the just-completed Dr. Fred and Sue Lackey Great Commission Lawn.
The Class of 2017 was the first to participate in “The Great Commission Tradition,” a new graduation tradition in which graduates touched the new Great Commission Globe fountain in the center of the lawn as they passed by on their way to receiving diplomas. The act signifies graduates’ commitment to serve others and spread the message and love of Jesus Christ as they fulfill their professional calling in the world.
