The eve of Commencement is reserved each year for honoring some of Bloomfield’s brightest graduates, as the institution held its annual Baccalaureate and Nurses Pinning ceremonies to begin the spring’s signature festivities on May 21.

The College began the afternoon by officially ushering 45 students into the ranks of nursing alumni, as the Frances M. McLaughlin ’45 Division of Nursing held its annual Pinning Ceremony in Westminster Arts Center’s Van Fossan Theatre.

Graduates received their divisional pins during the special midday affair, while several students were given special recognition for their dedication and service in their undergraduate studies. Dean Aguilar ’14 received the Nurse With A Heart Alumni Award, while Jason Osoteo ’14 and Viviana Lozano ’14, RN received the Florence Nightingale/Nursing Faculty Award. Seniors Bianca Poole ’14 and Marvail Christian ’14 were honored with the Mary Kuyper Award for Community Service, concluding a memorable afternoon for a distinguished group of graduates.

In the second event of the day, students were honored for their academic achievements in the annual Baccalaureate ceremonies.

Highlighting students who achieved a high GPA while pursuing honor society membership, graduates received honors cords for earning cum laude, magna cum laude and summa cum laude distinctions. Students also received cords for their work in the institution’s honors societies, with Alpha Chi (all majors), Delta Mu Delta (Business), Kappa Delta Pi (Education), Psi Chi (Psychology) and Sigma Theta Tau (Nursing) bestowing their organization’s highest honor on the group of distinguished academics.

The festivities also featured remarks from guest speaker and Bloomfield, N.J. Superintendent of Schools Salvatore Goncalves, who urged the graduates to continue to their extraordinary accomplishments as they move out into the world.

“I continue to be in awe of you as students, and what you have been able to accomplish,” he said during his remarks. “As you enter the ranks of college graduates, you have the opportunity to change the world, and to use your education to help make this world a better place.”

Commencement ceremonies will take place on the Bloomfield College campus on Thursday, May 22. The ceremony will begin at 9:30 a.m., with check-in beginning at 7 a.m. Guest seating will begin at 8 a.m.
