Grad Fest

Grad Fest 2023

Tuesday, March 14, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Shannon Center


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 2023 Grad Fest, which will be held Tuesday, March 14, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Shannon Center.

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.
  • Stop by the College-to-Career Expo from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
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 one hour prior to your Commencement ceremony line up on Saturday, May 6.
