What To Wear

Business attire is suggested and the receptions are held outdoors; check the day's weather reports for more information.


Seniors should wear their gowns for both the Baccalaureate and Commencement; caps are only worn for Commencement. Men should wear dark slacks, dark socks, and dark shoes. Women's wear that can be seen below the robe's hemline should be dark-colored.

Because Commencement does involve walking (both in the processional and across the stage during the presentation of diplomas), we strongly suggest that women wear low-heeled shoes (no flip flops).

Follow the care instructions provided with your robes. Our graduates tell us that they wrinkle disturbingly easily, especially when left in a pile in the seat of one's car.
