Peace holds Honors Chapel and Traditions dinner for first-year students

Laughter and smiles were everywhere on Sept. 10 as Student Government Association presented the Honors Chapel and Traditions dinner at William Peace University. The Honors Chapel, which has been going on for many years, was held in Dinwiddie Chapel.
The Reverend Dr. R. Lee Carter, Peace’s chaplain, started the program with a call to worship.
Frank Rizzo then talked about different things students should uphold while under the honor code. The audience was able to participate by saying different quotes such as, “Honesty is the best policy, if I lose mine honor, I lose myself,” by William Shakespeare. Carter then prayed and Sky Noblezada performed a special musical performance. Josie Carmona, Student Government Association President then did a litany on honor which the audience participated again. Followed by this there was mediation and William Peace University students were able to sign the honor code.
Samantha Gonzalez and Dustin Walker both freshmen at WPU were two of the few freshmen in attendance. “It was very nice and it was a way to present the honor code to new students,” said Gonzalez. When asked if he thought this event brought WPU Class of 2017 together Walker stated “No because it was not mandatory so no one really showed up.”
After Honors Chapel, students were served family-style by faculty and staff members in Belk Dining Hall. Students were then given roses at the end of the ceremony.
