Cap and Gowns and Tassels, Oh My!

posted on Monday, April 1, 2019 in  Parent Newsletter

Is your student planning on attending Commencement this spring? After all the graduation paperwork has been completed, perspective graduates can purchase their cap and gown at Hawkeye Bookstore. Starting on April 16, Hawkeye Bookstore will begin selling graduation regalia during the Grad Fair. We will have extended hours of 8-5:30 on Tuesday April 16, as well as Wednesday April 17. 

A full graduation package, including cap, gown, and tassel will be $32 (including tax). We will also have individual graduation pieces available depending on your student's need. For example, if your student has a black, non-shiny gown/hat from a previous ceremony, those can be worn again, but they will need an updated tassel with the 2019 date charm. In addition to the graduation regalia, we also have Commencement ceremony invitations as well as a small selection of diploma frames to highlight your student's achievement available for purchase in store. Congratulations graduates!
