Rho Alpha Mu Honor Society - RAM
Honor society membership has a long history in America, beginning when tutors and advanced teaching assistants joined forces to share scholarship discussion, and recognition of merit through an organization designated as Phi Beta Kappa, which was founded in 1776 at the College of William and Mary. In 1926 the California Community College Honor Society was formed under the title Alpha Gamma Sigma (ΑΓΣ). It is affiliated with the National Junior College Honor Society and The Phi Beta Kappa Organization of four year institutions. Rho Alpha Mu, the local chapter of Alpha Gamma Sigma, was formed in 1976. The Greek letters stand for RAM, the Gavilan College mascot. Eligibility for membership requires at least a 3.0 grade point average. In addition, members are required to complete ten hours of community service each semester, and participate in fundraising and other club activities. To be eligible for life membership in Alpha Gamma Sigma, students must maintain a 3.25 grade point average in at least 60 units of college work and have been a member in good standing for at least two continuous semesters. 2010-2011 Rho Alpha Mu of Gavilan College is proud to present Lifetime Membership in Alpha Gamma Sigma to the following students.

Academic Regalia
The academic regalia worn by students and faculty are part of a tradition that goes back to the first organized bodies of learning in the 12th Century. Commemorating the completion of formal education in the United States, the caps, gowns and hoods have been common apparel for the commencement ceremony since 1885. The more elaborate the gown and hood, the higher the degree. The silk lining of the hood bears the color or colors of the institution from which the bearer graduated. The hood colors associated with different subjects are as follows:

Apricot - Nursing Brown - Fine Arts, Architecture Citron - Social Work Copper - Economics Crimson - Journalism Dark Blue - Philosophy Drab - Commerce, Accountancy, Business Golden Yellow - Science Lemon Yellow - Library Light Blue - Education Maize - Agriculture Orange - Engineering Pink - Music Purple - Law Russet - Forestry Sage Green - Physical Education Scarlet - Theology Silver Gray - Speech White - Arts, Letters, Humanities
Mortarboards are the approved headgear. The black tassels are worn on the left side of the caps.

Gold cording is worn by those graduating with honors. Silver cording is worn by those receiving the Outstanding Scholar, Outstanding Vocational/Technical Student and Outstanding Transfer Student Awards.
