The Loma Linda University School of Allied Health Professions dean's and alumni offices partnered to establish a new tradition to recognize the school's graduates: the Senior "Hoodie" Ceremony.
With more than 500 students comprising the graduating class of 2014 from the school's more than 50 programs, the event on Tuesday, Dec. 3, brought together students, faculty, staff and families together to celebrate.
Dr. Craig Jackson, dean of the school, and Dr. Joshua Cacho, a recent graduate of the school's D.P.T. program, delivered remarks.
Although most students will not graduate until spring 2014, the event was held during Fall Quarter to allow as many students to participate as possible (many students will be off campus for clinical rotations Winter and Spring quarters)--and to give the students something cozy to wear throughout the winter.
