Office To Prepare Students For ‘Destination Graduation’

The Registrar’s Office will give upcoming graduates a one-stop ‘destination’ where all their questions can be answered on Wednesday (March 29).

The fourth “Destination Graduation” will be held from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Lowman Student Center Ballroom.

Departments from across campus will be on hand to answer such questions as “Where do I go for the ceremony,” “Is there anything else I need to do,” or “What do I do after graduating?”

“We just want to offer students a way to find out what is going on so that there are no surprises at the end of graduation,” said Maria Busby, assistant registrar.

The event is open to all students who have applied for May 2006 graduation, including all bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs.

Various door prizes, such as tanning certificates, a free round of golf, pizza, Quizno’s subs and a Visa gift card will be given out. There will also be an opportunity to win a diploma frame donated by the Registrar’s Office.

A big turnout is expected due to the growing number of students that attended in the fall and the more than 1,400 degree candidates this semester, according to Busby.
