Midnight March is an opportunity for students to honor individuals who positively impacted their college experience. During the weeks prior, seniors give a candle with a note to each special friend and UMHB faculty/staff member they wish to invite to the event. During the event, seniors wear their graduation gowns and walk in a line, singing "Up with the Purple". Midnight March guests stand in a circle. The seniors walk in a line around the circle and light the candles of those they invited.
You will receive a lighter to use for Midnight March at Musick Alumni Center and Museum at the Parker House. The only thing you need to bring for the event is your graduation robe.
