Latin Honors. Cards should be kept in the order that they are read and given to Registrar's

Each college will identify 1-2 stationary hooders. These faculty members will stand
on a platform facing the crowd and will hood each student in the college before they
approach the ramp to the substage. In addition to the stationary hooder, each academic
program will have 1 program hooder that will walk in the line in front of their students
and will assist with the hooding of their students, facing the student. After the
student is hooded they will move to a photo station before the ramp to the substage.
Each academic program will have 1 program hooder. This faculty member will line up with the students at least 30 minutes before the start of the ceremony. Make sure that all students have their name card and that they are carrying (not wearing) their hoods. Make sure that your students proceed into the arena in a single file line and are seated on the same side of the center aisle.
The program hooder will walk in the line in front of their students during the processional
and will be seated with the students on the arena floor. When your row is released
to approach the stage, you will go ahead of the students and walk past the stationary
hooder. You will then assist with the hooding of your students, facing the student.
After the student is hooded instruct them to move to the photo station near the ramp
to the substage. Tell them to hold the card down or behind their back so it's not
apparent in the photos.
