The Lantern Society consists of alumni who graduated New Paltz 50 or more years ago. The society was created to honor the tradition of the Lantern Ceremony. Lantern Night took place in conjunction with the Moving Up Day Ceremony on Campus, a tradition which began in 1929. All classes held a mass practice and sang their origi- nal humorous songs. The official day also included a symbolic Moving Up and Honors Convocation.
