NSU Grad Fest 2020 Offers Something for Every Commencement Candidate

The NSU Bookstore will host Grad Fest 2020 on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 from noon to 6:00 PM, at the NSU SharkStore on Main Campus. Grad Fest is aimed at all candidates participating in 2020 NSU commencement ceremonies, but everyone is welcome.

Commencement Stoles

Representatives from NSU Bookstore partner Herff Jones will be on site for personalized announcements and class ring orders. A wide variety of diploma frames will be on sale. Representatives from Werner Kahn Studios will be on hand to photograph graduates in academic regalia (these are not class composites). The portrait sitting is free of charge and picture proofs will be provided with no obligation to buy. Click here to schedule you portrait sitting. 

Cap and gown pickup will also be available to candidates at the Wednesday, April 15, 2020 event for those who ordered regalia prior to Sunday, March 8, 2020 (check regalia availability with the Bookstore prior to arrival).

Graduates will also be given the opportunity to purchase several optional stoles to adorn their regalia. The popular Stole of Gratitude offers candidates the opportunity to thank anyone who helped them along the way with their 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 international sash, with its embossed country flag, signifies pride in an international student’s country of origin.
