You can make a difference – Encourage students to graduate!

Graduation is approaching quickly (May 1st at Van Andel Arena.) Please help us encourage as many students as possible to apply to graduate (assuming they believe they are ready) and to participate in Commencement. Grad Fest is April 7th, so they should apply ASAP.

To encourage this dialogue and to help you engage with students about our desire for them to complete (and even transfer), we invite you to participate in the following ways:

Wear shirts/sweatshirts for 4-year institutions on March 16th and/or 17th. Use this as a chance to discuss completion, transfer and celebration!

Wear your “Ready, Set, Graduate” buttons on March 25th and 26th! (Don’t have one – stop by Student Life to pick one up.) Talk to students to find out if they are close to/ready for graduation. Many do not realize they have to apply. Your conversation could be the difference that helps them reach completion!

The application is online through the Student Records page. More information about Commencement can be found here:
