Schreyer Honors College (SHC)at Penn State

Spring 2018 Medals Ceremony


At this ceremony, graduates are presented with the prestigious Scholars medal, a symbol of true academic achievement.

At the end of each semester, the Schreyer Honors College holds a special ceremony to honor graduating Schreyer Scholars. At the ceremony, graduates are presented with the Scholars medal, created by metallist John A. Cook, professor emeritus of art in the College of Arts and Architecture. The medal is engraved with the phrases "Scholarly Achievement," "Integrity of Purpose," and "Intellectual Curiosity."

Tickets are required for admission and, due to the large number of graduates this spring, Scholars may request a maximum of four tickets each. Should additional tickets become available, Scholars will be notified in a message from the College that extra tickets may be picked up in the Atherton Hall offices on a first-come, first-served basis.

Additional guests will have the option of viewing the ceremony via video from 100 Life Sciences Building, which is a short walk from Eisenhower. The ceremony will also be livestreamed online at for anyone wishing to watch remotely.

Undergraduate cap and gown is required for the Medals Ceremony and can be purchased at the the Student Book Store.

Cost: Free
