Under the Oaks is a ceremony hosted each year by Newcomb Institute during Commencement week. At Under the Oaks, we honor graduating students, including award recipients (named awards and Oak Wreath), Newcomb Scholars, Mortar Board members, Newcomb grant recipients, Newcomb Alumnae Association award recipients, and outstanding faculty, in addition to hosting the current Newcomb College 50 year reunion.

Many cherished traditions from the Newcomb College commencement ceremonies are celebrated at Under the Oaks, including the Daisy Chain, presentation of a second diploma to each member of the Newcomb College Fifty-Year Class, wearing of the brown robes, distribution of class pins and mortarboard decals, and singing of the Newcomb College Alma Mater.
