This document acts as a supplement to the main commencement program of 1886. Given its humorous nature, it is safe to assume that it was written by the graduating class themselves. The word 'Bogus' is written in pencil on the top of the cover page. The program consists of the names of the graduating class followed by comical words and phrases used to describe these students. There is a section called 'Specialities by Faculty and Seniors', which, in a way, gives an interesting insight into the relationship between the faculty and the graduating class. Indicated by the small text on the lower end of the cover page, this program was printed by University Print.
