The Baccalaureate service derives from the medieval European custom of presenting the candidates for the degree of Bachelor (bacca) with laurels (lauri) of sermonic oration. Prefiguring Commencement, the ceremony is a service of worship that celebrates and gives thanks for lives dedicated to learning and wisdom.
