Graduation is coming fast and we understand that this time can be a bit stressful. Maybe you’re surprised you made it this far! Well we aren’t. Now graduation can be a great time, but not if you don’t have the right attire. How many graduations have you seen without tassels? None. Tassels are the cornerstone to graduation; just as cap and gowns. So you really don’t want to miss out and not be dressed with the attire needed to look fly at graduation!
Listed below is some general information about graduation attire.

Today was the luncheon for student employees, and your honors employees were there in attendance. We had a great time eating. So much fun was had, and this picture really captures that.
