Live video of both ceremonies will be streamed via Edinboro’s website and can be viewed online by logging onto edinboro.edu. The ceremonies also will be telecast live by the University’s student-run television station, ETV.



Nurses to be honored during special event

Following Saturday’s commencement from 4 to 6 p.m. in Van Houten Dining Hall South, students graduating with nursing degrees will be recognized during a traditional pinning ceremony, with faculty member Victoria Hedderick serving as emcee and Dr. Amy McClune delivering the faculty address.

The pinning ceremony marks the completion of the first part of the journey to becoming a nurse. Although the graduates’ formal education is completed, continued learning in nursing is a life-long pursuit. Thus, the pinning ceremony can be looked upon as the bridge that carries the individual from the role of student to the reality of becoming a professional.

The current nursing graduates are among the first to experience the new Jeremy D. Brown Human Services Building, designed to meet the specialized needs of the Nursing Department.

    V-v-v-v-eroom! is the high-pitched whine from the Honda CBR 600 sport motorcycle as Steven Pilic rolls back the throttle and speeds down the asphalt. In one quick, smooth motion — just like you put one foot in front of the other — he shifts his weight forward on the handlebars, jumps from the bike’s foot pegs, lands his feet on the seat and pulls the 400-plus pounds of metal up onto its back wheel, using a combination of balance, brakes, clutch and speed to circle slowly at first and then faster and faster, tighter and tighter while doing a wheelie.
