Parental Interest

There’s one more semester until graduation in May. That gives your student only 20 weeks to pay that growing stack of parking tickets, order invitations, buy a cap and gown and get sized for that class ring—a daunting time frame considering the speed at which most seniors move.

But, the alumni association is once again sponsoring what is fast becoming one of the more popular and beneficial events on campus: Commencement Countdown. The event allows seniors to take care of all their graduation needs in one day and in one spot.

Commencement Countdown 2003 takes place March 25-26 from noon to 7:00 p.m. at the Cintas Center. Booths on hand include the bookstore, financial aid, graduation portraits, career and leadership development, the bursar, the registrar and the senior legacy program.

“It’s a one-stop shop,” says Dianne Fisk, director for parent relations. “It’s nice to let parents know about it so they’re aware it even happens. It’s truly a service done by the University for the students. It’s also fun. The students get to win all kinds of prizes, and they can find out what’s available from the national alumni association after they graduate.”
