                        Jill Reza ’96 received her bachelor’s degree at Vanguard University through the
                        School for Professional Studies before graduating from USC School of Law,
                        where she served as the executive editor of the Southern California Review
                        of Law and Women’s Studies. Currently, Reza is an attorney who practices

                        numerous companies and organizations in the areas of organizational human
                        resources and general employment law. In addition to her legal career, Reza is an
adjunct professor at Vanguard, where she designed and authored the undergraduate law courses. She
also teaches at Whittier Law School, and spent a summer in China, teaching at Nanjing University.

                       Marlena Smith graduates from the School for Professional Studies program
                       with a degree in psychology. Marlena began her path to leadership in the
                       JROTC, leading her classroom as company commander. At Vanguard University
                       she was inducted into Psi Chi, the international honor society in psychology.
                       Marlena works for FedEx as the head ACO for FedEx’s new ROADS program.
                       Marlena is a volunteer at New Hope crisis counseling center and is an advocate

                             GRADUATE STUDENT SPEAKER
                             Kristel Miles
                         Kristel Miles graduates with her master’s degree in Leadership and Spirituality.
                         Kristel moved here from Hamilton, Ontario in 2009 to continue her studies in
                         Christian ministry and obtained her bachelor’s of theology at Master’s College
                         and Seminary in Toronto, Ontario. Her education at Vanguard has enabled her to
                         build upon her knowledge through a more specific focus on Christian leadership,
                         better equipping her for life-long ministry. She is passionate about evangelism,
                         worship, and helping teenage girls – and has enjoyed ministry experience in all
three areas. Kristel is currently serving on the worship team at RockHarbor, and is also playing an active
role in the launch of their new campus in Huntington Beach. She is excited about what the future will
hold, and is trusting God to lead her steps following graduation!

academic regalia
The academic costume worn today originated in the universities of the Middle Ages when a warm

gown and hood were useful for scholar and cleric in unheated buildings. Until after the Civil War,

students at most universities wore caps and gowns daily while in residence.


Academic regalia consists of three items, each of which may indicate the degree held by the wearer.

The CAP is the Oxford mortarboard, consisting of a head hugging cap topped with a square flat

surface, one corner of which faces the front of the wearer. The holder of a doctor’s degree may wear

a cap of velvet, with a tassel of gold or other metallic color indicating the academic field.

The GOWN varies according to the degree of the wearer. A bachelor’s degree holder wears a simple

gown. Those with a master’s degree wear a more elaborate gown with slit openings in the sleeve.

The doctoral gown may show the academic field color with three bars on the sleeve and panels on

the front of the gown.

The HOOD varies in length for the degree held by the wearer. The bachelor’s is three feet, the

master’s is three and a half feet, and the doctor’s is four feet. Hoods are bordered with the academic

field color (e.g. theology, scarlet; music, pink; etc.) in two, three and five inch stripes indicating

different degrees. The colors inside the hood—and sometimes the colors of the robe itself—indicate

the institution which awarded the degree (e.g. Boston University, red; New York University, purple;

University of Southern California, scarlet; Harvard University, crimson; etc.).
