HUST Hooding

This year, hooding took place campus-wide on the Sunday before finals week. HUST hooding tradition begins with a food spread, including the much-talked-about mini-quiches, continues with a presentation by Professor Shinners on the history of university apparel that dates back to the Middle Ages. What better way to commence the ceremony than to make connections from history to our own lives, in true HUST fashion! Each of the eight seniors, in turn, was hooded by the department staff--Professor Hicks, Professor Shinners, and Professor Ambrose. During the toast portion of the ceremony, students gave sentimental toasts focusing on the bonds formed between each other and between the students and professors. The moment was bittersweet, but the now graduated seniors are all on their ways to do great things--Teach for America, Law School, Graduate School, and the workforce.
