Homecoming is the tradition of welcoming back former student s and members and celebrating an organization's existence. It is a tradition in many high schools, colleges, and churches. It is built around a central event, such as a banquet or dance and, most often, a game of American football, or on occasion, basketball, ice hockey, or soccer.
A promenade dace, commonly called a prom, is a dance party for high school students. It may be offered in semi-formal black tie or informal suit for boys. The event is typically held near the end of the school year.
Graduation is the award of a diploma or academic degree, or the ceremony that is sometimes associated with it, in which students become graduates. The graduation ceremony itself is often called: commencement, convocation or invocation. Ceremonies often include a procession of the academic staff and candidates and a valediction. Formal and informal parties celebrating graduation are popular.
