A group photograph will be taken of the Class of 2022 during rehearsal. Students who are not present will not be included in the class photo. Please wear the cap, gown, and tassel that were ordered for you. We used the height and weight you provided on your Graduation Application to ensure your regalia fits you. You may keep all of these after the ceremony.

Please refrain from wearing flip-flops, tennis shoes, or jeans. Also, the college reserves the right to remove decorated caps if they include anything inappropriate.
