One of the first traditions established in Loyd Commons, the Loyd Pinning Ceremony occurs twice a semester.

The first Loyd Pinning Ceremony was held at the first ever Loyd Commons Banquet on September 11, 2014.  At the first banquet, the RAs, Faculty Affiliates, and Residence Community Chaplain were all pinned by the Faculty in Residence, Professor Mark Fontenot & Residential Community Director, Ty Krueger.  From there, the RAs selected two recipients – these first two recipients were the start of their pin family. At each following banquet, the recipient at the previous banquet wILL choose another recipient and award them a Loyd pin.

Pin Recipient Qualifications:

  • Be a member of Loyd Commons
