Do not forget to wear your tassel on the right of your cap. After your degree is conferred
you will then move your tassel to the left of your cap. Also, it is best to wear dark
trousers or hose and dark shoes with the gown for the class picture. Men usually wear
a shirt and tie (no jacket) under the gown and women wear a dress. You want the presentation
to look nice for the pictures and you want to be comfortable because it will probably
be a very warm day.

you up for the processional in alphabetical order. Please be sure to bring your hoods
(do not wear them) as you will be hooded on stage.
