Summer Commencement Convocation

10 a.m., Saturday, July 30, 2016, J.F. Lane Health Building

Greetings from the President

Congratulations! It is with Jesus' joy that I join you in celebrating your graduation from Lane College. The Commencement vigil is filled with traditional and new activities to commemorate your place in the College's history and celebrate your accomplishment. These webpages provide important details and information about the various aspects of services and activities associated with the Annual Commencement Convocation.

Your graduation officially reckons you a scholar, an expert and a leader in your chosen field of study. During the course of your time matriculating through Fair Lane, you received intellectual instruction in the classroom and life instruction in Chapel while practicing Christian citizenship on campus and in the community. You are ready to make a difference in the world and live out "The Four Secrets of the Dragon."

I bid you to go into "all nations" with the power of Christ and the authority of your degree to lead, serve, and teach all people of every race, color, creed and nationality. Please visit often and keep us apprised of your successes.Grace, mercy and peace,

Logan Hampton, Ed.D.
