Honors Program

Cording Ceremony


Each year, Honors hosts a special ceremony during graduation weekend. At this ceremony students receive the honors sash that they will wear at graduation. The Cording Ceremony is a chance for students, their friends and family, and their professors to celebrate the students' university achievements.

One unique aspect of the ceremony is that students receive their sashes from the professor who most influenced them during their time at FGCU. Thus making the Cording Ceremony a special honor for both the students and the faculty members who mentored them.

Every student receives 2 complementary tickets to the Cording Ceremony upon completing her/his exit interview. Additional tickets to the ceremony can be purchased through the Honors Store.
