Candle Lighting Ceremony at Coker
Leaving the office just before 8:30 on Sunday evening I saw a a large circle of students forming in front of Davidson Hall in the middle of the Coker College campus. I had heard of the Commissioner Candle Lighting ceremony but this was the first time I had seen it. This is an impressive orientation tradition. The ceremony concluded with the singing of "Friends and Friends Forever" -- quite appropriate for the relationships that begin with the first weekend at college. I was glad I had gone into get some last minute things done so that I had a chance to see this impressive event.
