WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE INDUCTION?
After you are all seated in the middle section, the Induction Ceremony will begin. The program consists of a lot of inspirational information being given to you from other experienced members, a welcome message from Ms. Gullick and Dr. Covert; as well as some National-level procedural tasks. During all of this, it is very important that you remain seated and quiet! Set a good example for the people next to you.
At one point during the ceremony, Ms. Gullick will ask you to stand and to read your pledge. Note: you will have brought your pledge cards from the Student Union. Please read from your cards together as a group.
Finally, after the Lighting of the Candles, you will be asked to process onto the stage. You will shake hands with Dr. Covert, Ms. Gullick and the other members of the Ceremony. Collect your "certificate" and go sit back down. Note: These are not your real certificates! Your real certificates will be presented to you after completion of your requirements.
