Students who plan to march in the Commencement ceremony must wear academic regalia. Baccalaureate degree and graduate students wear a black gown, mortarboard (black hat), tassel and a colorful hood. Associate degree students do not wear a hood.
Regalia may be ordered at no cost at The Stable’s Grad Fair held the week of March 20. All regalia orders must be placed by March 24. 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.
For more information about regalia and the Grad Fair, stop by The Stable or contact Store Manager Malaika Sidmore at 603.526.3720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
