Rituals and Traditions

Graduation Contract Meetings

Each Johnston student has two Graduation Contract meetings, one in the sophomore year and one in the senior year. 

The Sophomore Graduation Contract proposes a vision for the Johnston education. It includes a narrative and proposed course listings.

The Senior Graduation Review is a celebration of the academic and community contributions of each student. 

At Johnston, we honor what is unique and celebrate collectively!

It culminates in the Johnston Graduation, which takes place after the College of Arts and Sciences Graduation.

This Johnston ritual is less about a piece of paper and more about a collective celebration of all that the senior class has brought to us.  Johnston is different every year because who we are is shaped by the students that are here.
