The St. Paul Campus Store will hold its annual Grad Fest to help 2016 graduating seniors prepare for and celebrate their impending graduation. The celebration will be held on Wednesday, April 20, and Thursday April 21, from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. in the Campus Store and its atrium on the lower level of Murray-Herrick Campus Center.
Seniors can pick up their caps, gowns and tassels (must present valid UST ID and be registered to walk in commencement). Staff from the Registrar's Office will be available if students have any questions over whether or not they are registered to walk.
Students who are unable to attend April 20 or 21 may pick up their gear through Friday, May 20, at Customer Service in the Campus Store.
Visit the St. Paul Campus Store for a piece of cake, as well as 15-percent off diploma frames on Grad Fest days only. Those who buy a diploma frame also will receive a free T-shirt.
The following vendors will be available for additional graduation celebration items:
A photographer will be on hand for seniors who wish to have a photo taken to commemorate their graduation. Graduation-themed items, such as a cap, gown and scroll will be available if students wish to include them in their photos, which will be available to purchase from the photographer.
