GradFest gets students ready for graduation, life after school

Patricia Drey

The University will help May graduates prepare for commencement and life afterward at this year’s GradFest.

Students can pick up a cap and gown, order a class ring or graduation announcements and have graduation photos taken at the event.

GradFest 2004 runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday in Coffman Union’s Great Hall.

In addition to ceremony preparations, students can bring resumes for evaluation, join the Alumni Association and learn about graduate school.

Exiting students with loans can also attend a required exit interview where they will learn about federal loan regulations and University loan policies. The group interviews start approximately every 45 minutes.
