Senior Activities and Programs

There are many activities and programs planned for seniors during the spring semester to recognize the significant accomplishments of the graduating class and offer social opportunities to celebrate this important milestone.

Caps, Gowns, and Tassels

All undergraduate ceremony participants must wear green caps, gowns, and tassels. Graduate ceremony participants must wear black caps and gowns. Both sets may be purchased from the Barnes & Noble College Bookstore in the Seymour College Union beginning March 27. No advance order is necessary, as sizes are assigned by height. Undergraduate sets are $56.98. A master’s set with hood is $74.98. The Certificate of Advanced Study sash is also available for purchase for $22.98.

Undergraduate students who have earned cum laude, magna cum laude, or summa cum laude honors will receive special tassels denoting those honors. See GPA requirements in the College's policy on Academic Honors for Undergraduates.
