Honoring our best and brightest

A Mount Ida College tradition, the Senior Awards Banquet recognizes the academic, leadership and co-curricular accomplishments of our graduating seniors. Held each spring, we individually honor our soon-to-be graduates in a celebratory atmosphere that includes family and friends as well as staff and faculty members. During the Senior Awards Banquet our president, vice president of academic affairs and our school administrators recognize students with academic program and community leadership awards, including the valedictorian, distinguished scholarships and Latin Honors.

Students recognized at this ceremony have accomplished one or more of the following:

  • Received prestigious college-wide academic scholarships 
  • Merited other leadership or co-curricular recognitions
  • Completed college with the distinction of Latin Honors


Graduating with Latin Honors

In addition to recognizing college awards, we also grant the designation of summa cum laude (CGPA of 3.80 to 4.00), magna cum laude (CGPA of 3.67 to 3.79) or cum laude (CGPA of 3.33 to 3.66) at Senior Awards Banquet. If you graduate with a cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 3.3 or greater, you receive honors cords to be worn during commencement. Through maintaining a strong GPA, you are eligible to be selected by our academic program departments for Latin Honors. If you have any questions about qualifications for honors, contact Academic Affairs at (617) 928-4511.
