Dear Parents,

We recently sent your student the message below. We would like to share it with you as well.


Caps and gowns will be available for pickup starting Wednesday, April 21 through Friday, April 23 from 9am to 4pm in Thayer, Templeton Student Center. Please sign up for your one hour timeslot below to pick up your cap and gown. You may come anytime during this reserved window of time. Remote students who are unable to come to campus to pick up will be mailed their boxes.

If you're curious about whether or not you will be receiving a specific cord, please reach out directly to the sponsoring office/department.


Reserve your pickup time!


GradImages will be here on campus during our in-person celebration on May 8th, and we want you to come dressed up in your formal cap and gown to commemorate this day! Look for signups as we get closer to the date; you will need to reserve your time for the photo opportunity but be sure to sign up with your pod of friends! Your faculty and staff will be here that day to cheer you on!



We have an amazing lineup of food trucks on May 8th that will be on campus starting 11:00am to 1:00pm! Vegetarian and/or vegan options available as appropriate.
