Faculty/staff are invited to participate by lining the processional pathway cheering on the graduates.

Although academic attire is not required to attend the Recognition Walk, we do encourage graduates to wear the keepsake gown they received in 2020. For those who do not have cap and gown apparel from last year, academic attire is available to rent/purchase through the Herff Jones company beginning Tuesday, August 3, 2021. Undergraduates will have the option to purchase a cap and gown package and graduate students will be able to rent attire. Apparel will be shipped to your residence within 10 - 14 days after receipt of order. The deadline to purchase cap and gown apparel is Thursday, September 2, 2021.

The Graduate Recognition Walk will happen rain or shine. Only in the event of severe weather will the event be delayed.
