Keuka College students, faculty, staff, family, and friends celebrated the College’s annual Baccalaureate Service on Friday, May 17, in the College’s Norton Chapel.

Baccalaureate is a spiritual service that allows graduates to reflect on life changes, ponder the future, express gratitude, and be challenged to make a difference in the world. Students participated through readings, prayers, songs, and other artistic forms of expression.

The Baccalaureate Address was given by the Rev. Dr. Marlowe V.N. Marlowe, who spoke of public service and community. Reflections, poems, songs, and readings were offered by Tessa Alianell ’19, Genevieve Callejo ’19, Samy Hamdan, ’19, Mack Ottens ’19, Malcolm Knight-Tyler ’19, Laura Sprague ’19, Victoria Syracusa ’19, and Carissa Wong ’19.

Students and their families also heard from Keuka College President Amy Storey, who spoke of the service’s tradition of spotlighting inspirational speakers, as well as students Kimberley Reid ’19 and Marissa Mitchell ’19, and a 2019 Class Video featuring Mary Mullen ’19, McKayla Nolan ’19, Jim Truong ’19, Vanessa Tsarevich ’19, and Megan Weber ’19.
