Commencement / Graduation

What will you wear?

This is easy!  All graduates wear black gowns and caps.  They have a great appearance and save the expense of a new outfit.

We will be ordering "Souvenir Packages" this year, which means that students will keep both the cap and gown. 

No jeans please!  This is a formal occasion and we expect our grads to be dressed appropriately.

If you will require assistance being seated, please contact the guidance office at (705) 329-4537, ext. 42262.
