2016 Grad Fairs

The NSU Bookstore hosts annual Grad Fairs, which celebrate the achievements of our students and offer the availability of various services. The Grad Fairs take place at the Shark Store in the Don Taft University Center (UC) on the main campus. All graduates and their guests are welcome.

Commencement Stoles

Representatives from Herff Jones and Balfour will be on site for personalized announcements and class ring orders. A wide variety of diploma frames will be available for purchase and representatives from Werner Kahn Studios will be on hand to photograph candidates in academic regalia. The portrait sitting is free of charge and picture proofs will be provided with no obligation to buy. Caps and gowns ordered prior to the RSVP deadlines may also be available for pick up.

Grad Fairs for the 2016 commencement season are scheduled for Friday and Saturday, April 8-9; Friday and Saturday, May 6-7; and Friday and Saturday, June 3-4. Grad Fair times are from noon to 6:00 p.m.

Again this year, two optional stoles will be offered that candidates can purchase and share. The first is the Stole of Gratitude, which offers candidates the opportunity to thank anyone who has helped them along the way toward graduation from college. After being worn at commencement, the new graduate presents the Stole of Gratitude to someone who provided extraordinary help or support.

The second stole is the international sash, with its embossed country flag, signifying pride in an international student’s country of origin.
