Grad Fest

Grad Fest 2022

Thursday, March 17, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Shannon Center Auxiliary Gym


Your Commencement celebration is just around the corner, and it's time to start preparing for your big day.

Join your fellow graduating Cougars at the 2022 Grad Fest, which will be held Thursday, March 17, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Shannon Center auxiliary gym.

At Grad Fest, you can:

  • Pick up your cap, gown and tickets.
  • Take professional photos in your regalia with our on-sight photographer.
  • Receive your graduation gift from the National Alumni Board.
  • Have an on-site resume review from the Center for SUCCESS.
  • Complete SXU's First Destination Survey.
Be sure to bring your student ID or valid government-issued ID to secure your regalia and tickets.

Note: This is the only day for regalia pick-up. If you are unable to attend yourself, you may send someone to Grad Fest to pick up your regalia. We will ask that person for their ID to record they picked up your regalia on your behalf. You also have the option of picking up your regalia prior to your Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 7.

Given the changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, Commencement activities, including Grad Fest, will be held with the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and guests in mind. We continue to monitor local, state and federal rules and guidelines and will communicate any updates, should they arise, as quickly as possible.

We look forward to celebrating with you!
