|SOUTHEASTERN GRADUATING SENIORS INVITED TO ANNUAL “GRAD FAIR”
HAMMOND – “Grad Fair,” Southeastern
Louisiana University’s “one-stop shopping” opportunity for graduating seniors,
will have a new service and a new location this year.
Scheduled for March 17-18, the annual
event gives graduating seniors the opportunity to take care of a variety
of graduation-related tasks and requirements. This year, Grad Fair will
move to the Alumni Center on University Ave.
“As our graduating seniors are ‘almost
alumni,’ we thought it would be an appropriate place to host the event,”
said Jackie Dale Thomas, director of Leadership Development/ Student Activities
and the co-advisor to Gamma Beta Phi, the event’s sponsors.
Grad Fair hours are noon-5 p.m. on
Thursday, March 17, and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Friday, March 18.
For the first time, seniors will be able to buy caps and gowns at Grad
Fair, rather than just place an order, Thomas said. The service is available
on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Students who have already ordered caps
and gowns through the University Bookstore can pick up their order at Grad
Fair. Orders will also be taken for students who are unable to purchase
their graduation regalia that day.
Also at Grad Fair, seniors can complete
required financial aid and student exit surveys, purchase class rings and
other Southeastern memorabilia, and obtain information on topics such as
career placement, the Alumni Association and the Southeastern Development
