Inaugural White Coat Ceremony

The Inaugural White Coat Ceremony is scheduled for August 15, 2014, at 4:00 p.m. on the LMU Harrogate Campus. As stated in the CVM Student Handbook, “When representing CVM in any type of public forum, such as a conference or certain on-campus events (e.g. White Coat Ceremony and Transition Ceremony) the dress code is, at the very least, business casual (shirts and ties for men, dresses for women).” This is especially important given that the students will be photographed in their new white coats after exiting the cloaking stage. Family and friends are encouraged to attend the event. A light reception will immediately follow the ceremony. The ceremony will be webcast so that those who are unable to attend can watch on their computers.
