On Wednesday, December 11, students, alumni, and administrators held a ceremony to dedicate and raise the official flag of the School of General Studies on the northeast corner of Lewisohn Lawn.
 
The flag bears the School's official shield and the letters G and S and marks the School's place physically on the Morningside Campus and symbolically as an integrated undergraduate school of the University.
 
Speakers included School of General Studies Dean Peter J. Awn, Dean of Students Tom Harford, and Co-Chair of the Recent Alumni Leadership Committee Christopher Riano '07. Members of the Class of 2013, who gave the flag and flagpole as a gift to the School, were in attendance, including 2013 Senior Class President Angelica Hoyos and 2013 Dean's Citation recipient Nicole Morgan.
