What is the Rites of Passage Ceremony?

The Rites of Passage Ceremony serves to honor and celebrate students who identify as Black/African American that have successfully completed an Associate Degree, Certification or will be transferring to a Four-Year University.  This event both recognizes students’ accomplishments and the community that supported them, while also marking the transition from their time at Monterey Peninsula College to their future studies or professional endeavors. Come celebrate in this ceremonial pre-commencement event that embraces African culture, customs, and traditions. You can expect to hear words of wisdom form notable speakers, student awards and recognition, and musical selections, culminating with the presentation of Kente Stoles, followed by a reception for graduates and guests.  This ceremony is free for students, guests and the community.
