Regalia & Grad Fair
Students who plan to march in the Commencement ceremony must wear academic regalia. Baccalaureate degree students wear a black gown, mortar-board (black hat), tassel and a colorful hood. Associate Degree students do not wear a hood.
Regalia may be ordered for no cost at The Stable’s Grad Fair held during the week of March 20. All regalia orders must be placed by April 1. At the fair students may also shop for diploma frames, graduation announcements, class rings and college chairs. Some items are currently available for purchase from The Stable's website: shop.colby-sawyer.edu.
Students must pick up regalia at The Stable during Senior Week.
