Apparel: Caps and gowns are, of course, the “uniform of the day.” Caps should be placed so that the mortarboard is level, with the long point of the crown at the back. Tassels should be on the right until the Tassel Ceremony following the awarding of the diplomas and certificates. Caps & Gowns do NOT need to be returned…They are yours to keep. You will also be happy to know that they are made from 100% recycled materials.

Graduate Processional: Graduates and faculty will line up at 6:30 p.m. in front of the Mary Miller Gymnasium. In case of rain, line-up will be in the South Corridor (in the lower level) of the Mary Miller Complex. Graduates will line up in alphabetical order by their last name. Board members and faculty will precede graduates in the processional. Student Marshals will lead the graduates into the gym.
